Breastfeeding has a number of benefits, such as building your baby’s immunity against illness. Recent research reveals that breastfeeding may reduce the risk of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Researchers conducted a retrospective study that revealed a well-defined link between breastfeeding rate and the chances of a child being diagnosed with ADHD. The investigators have yet to discover why breastfeeding is related to a reduced incidence of ADHD in children, but they are conducting additional research to shed more light on this issue.
