[twitter]Did you notice when your preschooler started to look like a ‘big boy’ or a ‘big girl’?

According to a new study, there’s a time, usually around 4 and a half, when kids start to lose their round baby face – and they’re no longer irresistibly cute.

Psychologists at the University of Toronto had 60 people rate infant and child faces on likability and attractiveness. The study found that scores started to radically change around 4 1/2.

Find out why after the jump.

    Here’s something I’ve always wondered even before I had my own kiddo. Let’s be honest, there are ugly kids. We’ve all seen them. Do you think the parents of ugly kids know that their kids are ugly?

    It’s hilarious that it shortens up my title. Instead of psychologist, it shortens to Mommy Psycho when I comment. I think I like that better!
