Groundbreaking Study: Breastfeeding Reduces SIDS Risk

Neat ! I had heard about it before, but it was more like a gossip and I am always afraid of sounding like a breastfeeding freak when I rave about all its advantages. Now a team of German experts has confirmed it in a scientific study published March 3rd in Pediatrics: full or even partial breastfeeding provides a 50% reduction in the incidence of SIDS. Ain’t that an impressive number ? I am amazed. Breastfeeding should soon become a recommendation for parents eager to protect their children from the first cause of death for infants in developed countries.
