New Study Has Shocking Insights About Breastfeeding Benefits



To breastfeed or not to breastfeed, that is the question that often plagues new mothers, particularly when it doesn’t come nearly as easily to some as it does to others.

The pressure to breastfeed comes from both science and society. Scientific studies show that a major medical benefit of breast milk is its ability to help fight infection in newborns. Socially women may feel like they’re “less of a mom” if they choose not to nurse, even though that is 100 percent not true.

But a new study shows that while the short-term benefits of breastfeeding hold true, it may not play such a large role in a child’s life long-term.
