The list of extraordinary benefits of breast milk is long, and it is now known that infants who are breastfed may be more intelligent than others because they have increased neurocognitive ability.
Experts from the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) and the Del Monte Institute of Neuroscience have performed thousands of tests on nine- and ten-day-olds. When compared to infants who did not drink breast milk, their results and scores were very good.
Daniel Eden Lopez is the lead author of the report and claims that the positive effects of breast milk can be seen in just a few months. According to a report published in FrontierZan Public Health, this research is of paramount importance to mothers in fostering breastfeeding.
Haley Martin, from the same study, says that if the mother breastfeeds the baby, it is very useful for both. Therefore, it is important to decide to breastfeed immediately after the baby is born. Thus, in a fast-paced environment and in offices, etc., it is very important to cultivate the tendency of breastfeeding by the mother. Experts stressed that it is important to remove all obstacles in the process.
The study included 9,000 New Year’s Day children. Neurocognitive tests were performed on infants who did not drink breast milk and their scores were noted. It was also found that the longer a baby is breastfed, the more benefits it will have.
The best of them were babies who had been breastfed for 12 months. Children between the ages of seven and 12 were less likely to have a brain test, and those who were breastfed for six months had less brain activity. But when they were compared to infants who did not drink milk, they were ahead of them in every way. That is, their mental activity has been observed to be excellent.
