Does breast-feeding a child as an infant affect her behavior in the future? Yes, according to Tel Aviv University's Dr. Aviva Mimouni-Bloch.
Dr. Mimouni-Bloch and other researchers found that children who were breast-fed as infants are significantly less likely to experience ADHD. The study compared the breast-feeding histories of children ages 6 to 12 at Schneider Children's Medical Center in Israel. The children were split into three groups: children with ADHD, siblings of children with ADHD, and a control group of children without ADHD.
Dr. Mimouni-Bloch now wants to conduct another study that focuses on high-risk children and their development over the years to get more conclusive data.
