Botox and baby: Botox could interfere with mother's communications, study says

Botox may help maintain a youthful, wrinkle-free look-- but could also affect the ability to communicate with a baby.

In addition to smoothing wrinkles, Botox can also limit facial expressions, which is how parents communicate with their babies. New research suggests if you limit those expressions, you may be limiting how much information you are passing to your baby -- and that in turn can lead to a disconnect.

Some plastic surgeons disagree. They say if Botox is properly administered it should still allow some expression.
