But does it enhance their brainpower?

Breast-feeding linked with better brainpower in kids Breast-feeding has been associated with most kinds of health benefits for children, but does it enhance their brainpower? New research from England implies that children who had been breast-fed as babies score higher on cleverness testing than their bottle-fed counterparts here . For a scholarly research published in the Journal of Pediatrics, researchers used vocabulary and pattern-recognition tests to measure the cognitive development of about 12,000 five-year-olds, including some who was simply born prematurely.


Milk may seep from the other breast. This is called the let-down reflex, or milk-ejection reflex. The let-straight down reflex happens whenever your baby’s sucking triggers nerves in the nipple. The nerves send a note to your brain telling it to release milk. The mind releases a hormone known as oxytocin that triggers tiny muscle groups in the breasts to tighten and squeeze the milk out, or let it down. Oxytocin also can make you experience cramps in your uterus when your milk allows down. This is helpful in returning your uterus back to its original size.
