Breastfeeding is always encouraged among mothers whether new or not. It’s a fact that breast milk bring many benefits not only to the baby but as well as to the mom.
A new study has, in fact, found that breastfeeding can lower the baby’s risk of getting ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). The research which was published in the Breastfeeding Medicine journal discovered that kids with ADHD were breastfeed for a short period only (up to 3 months).
The scientists, in studying the two control groups, found that only 29 percent of children with ADHD in the first control group were breastfed until they were three months old. In the second control group (non-ADHD), more than half of the kids were breastfed until they were six months.
The latest findings prompted the authors of the research to suggest that breastfeeding kids longer may prevent ADHD. [Read more…] about Breastfeeding May Lower ADHD Risk
