Breastfeeding linked to better Childhood Behavior?
Breastfeeding linked to better Childhood Behavior?

Children breastfed exclusively for their first six months of life have an easier time behaving as primary school students, according to new research published Tuesday. Just six months of breastfeeding can make your children brighter and well-behaved, according to a recent study.

The pair of new studies further strengthens scientific understanding of the links between what a child experiences in the first years of life and later childhood behaviour and abilities.

In the first study, published in PLOS Medicine, an international team led by Dr Ruth M. Bland of the University of Glasgow assessed over 1,500 children in South Africa, 900 of whom had been involved in an early infant feeding.
