IQs higher and childhood obesity lower in breastfed babies...
In addition to lowering the risk of childhood obesity, scientists believe breast milk may boost IQ in nursing infants. Their IQs may even reach 8 points higher than babies who aren’t breast fed, especially in verbal evaluations. It’s a two-part hypothesis: the nutrients in breast milk help brain development and mental skills while the actual act of breast feeding is an intimate experience that aids baby development too.
