Bond Baby Bond

We all know breast milk is nutritious for baby, and some studies have even shown it can boost IQ and reduce the risk of SIDS. Now, new research from Yale University School of Medicine has found that breastfeeding increases the parent/infant bond.

The act of breastfeeding appears to release hormones that enhance maternal behavior. The study performed functional MRIs on mothers a month to four months after their babies were born. Mothers who breast fed had a greater brain response to their babies cries.
