Study reveals that there are less behavior problems for breast fed babiesMay 11th, 2011 - 1:14 am ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
London, May 10 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A recent study shows all the more results for mothers to breast-feed their babies instead of going in for formula milk. British researchers carried out a study in which they were able to gauge the behavior pattern of babies who were breast-fed and who were given formula milk. And the results are shocking to say the least. Breast fed babies are less likely to have behavioral problems when compared to their formula milk counterparts.
The results of the study were published in the Archives of Disease in Childhood journal. The researchers basically asked the parents to fill up a questionnaire related to the behavior patterns of their children. And they deduced that babies who were given breast milk for even just four months had a better behavior record when compared to those who were raised on formula milk.
Maria Quigley, who belongs to the national perinatal epidemiology unit at Oxford University, said in a statement that, “Mothers who want to breastfeed should be given all the support they need. Many women struggle to breastfeed for as long as they might otherwise like, and many don’t receive the support that might make a difference”.
