This doesn't sound right to me

So, my brother has been trying to tell me since my DS was born 3 weeks ago that if you tickle a baby's feet, it'll make them smarter. I've never heard of that before and it sounds like he's making stuff up (he's notorious for that...he tried to tell my mom that my DH was raised by his aunt because his mom was a drug addict and abandoned him...wha?). He claims he heard it when he was working at Baby's R Us. Has anyone else heard of this?

Hmm..never heard of it.  The only old wives tale I have ever heard about feet tickling was..it will make the baby stutter.  I don't believe either is true:)

I've never heard of that.  All it did with mine was piss them off.

That's the one I heard too.
