    In theory, yes. Practical application still lacks much though.

    I hear they taste like pork. Probably full of homocompatible germs though.

    A few years ago I didn't like them much.

    But now I just love them.

    Maybe it's my paternal instincts kicking in.

    Edit -

    I prefer kids more than babies though. Babies don't speak much.

    I like kids, but find babies a little daunting. Never quite sure how to hold them, or do with them for that matter. I do like caring for people though, and am looking forward to having my own someday.

    I don't like kids. I liked mine after I had them. I like them best when they are babies or teens. Kids in the 4-12 range mostly want to play and I am totally not interested.

That's pretty amazing to see. And of course, then they become even older and eventually you can seen advanced reasoning and perception take hold and you start to catch more and more sight of the people they are becoming.

    Kind of a long answer, but the deal is that the "baby" is the stage I preferred the least. It's all about total care, intense schedules (a three-hour sleep/play/eat cycle), etc.
    Yep. I never liked babies (boring and labor-intensive), but I LOVE toddlers. Toddlers are nature's comedians. Then they grow out of that stage, and I'm bored again.

    Yes, OMG. They want to play SO MUCH. I'll play with a kid for about five minutes and then my brain withers and dies. Especially board games. Can you imagine how much you'd have to play with an only child?

    Basically my INTJ mom's attitude. She said she loved having me and my brother but generally she's not that into kids/babies. I mean, she's ok with them, but she REALLY loves animals. She'd be gaga over puppies where she'd be polite about babies

    Btw, I'm an NF who doesn't really know what to do with babies. They can be cute, but I'd rather not get too involved. Kids can be nice if they're reasonably well behaved and I can have a conversation with them. Babies seem like an awful lot of work though and I'm lacking in maternal instincts.

    My ENFJ is a wonderful daddy and little kids flock to him but he wasn't particularly comfortable with the baby stage. He likes them better when they can have a conversation and be somewhat self-sufficient. I'm much more mothering, I like the baby stage.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I am uncomfortable being around them because I have little to no mothering/protective instinct.
