PROLONGED BREASTFEEDING UPS IQ

Prolonged breastfeeding makes kids smarter, according to a new report, which tracked 13,889 youngsters from birth to age 6.5 years. The Wechsler Abbreviated Scales of Intelligence (WASI) showed statistically significantly higher IQ scores among children who had been exclusively breastfed and with increased length of breastfeeding. In addition, teachers rated the breastfed children academically superior in reading and writing.
