Breastfeeding Improves Baby's IQ!

Heard the news yet?

An international team of scientists has concluded that breast milk and breastfeeding are beneficial to a baby's IQ.


This confirms what many people have long believed, and several other studies have attempted to prove.

On average, breastfed babies had a 5 point IQ advantage over babies that were not breastfed. There is still controversy as to whether the breastfed babies score better because they are breastfed, or because breastfed babies have moms that further influence their babies' IQ development.

Regardless of the reasons, whether physiological or psychological, breastfeeding is a smart practice to raise a healthy and intelligent baby.
