BABIES WHO ARE BREAST-FED UNTIL SIX MONTHS ARE BETTER BEHAVED AS CHILDREN



Babies who are breast-fed until the age of six months are better behaved as children, researchers have found.
Experts monitored the behaviour of 1,500 children aged between seven and 11.
They found those who had only been breastfed for the first month of their life, or less, were twice as likely to display behavioural problems than those who were breastfed until six months.
The research, led by Glasgow University experts and carried out among children in South Africa, suggests breastfeeding has benefits that extend beyond physical health.





 Experts have long advised that babies are fed with breast milk for at least six months, where possible, with proven benefits including a stronger immune system, improved digestive system, and lower risk of certain forms of cancer.
But experts are beginning to realise that breastfeeding also has benefits for IQ, cognitive skills, and behaviour.
