Breastfeeding Babies May Give them a Brain Boost

A new study suggests that breastfeeding babies for longer than six months may give them a brain boost that will last into their school years.

The study, published December 20, 2010 in The Journal of Pediatrics, found out that breast-fed babies scored higher in math tests and had higher reading and writing skills at the age of 10 compared with those who were bottle-fed as babies.
This is particularly evident in boys who normally lag in development behind girls. The findings of this study support the recommendations of both the World Health Organization and the American Academy of Pediatrics, which advise new mothers to breast-feed infants exclusively for at least six months.

These findings raise the inevitable question:

Are moms who choose not to breast-feed being irresponsible with their baby's care?
