Baby fever—a visceral physical and emotional desire to have a baby—is well known in popular culture, but has not been empirically studied in psychology. Different theoretical perspectives suggest that desire for a baby is either superfluous to biological sex drives and maternal instincts, a sociocultural phenomenon unrelated to biological or evolutionary forces, or an evolved adpatation for regulating birth timing, proceptive behavior, and life history trajectories. A series of studies (involving 337 undergraduate participants and 853 participants from a general population Internet sample) found that:
(a) a simple scale measure could elicit ratings of desire frequency;
(b) these ratings exhibited significant sex differences;
(c) this sex difference was distinct from a general desire for sexual activity;
and (d) these findings generalize to a more diverse online population.
Factor analyses of ratings for desire elicitors/inhibitors identified three primary factors underlying baby fever. Baby fever appears to be a real phenomenon, with an underlying multifactorial structure.
