The benefits of mother’s milk for premature infants have been confirmed by yet another study.

This latest study looked at the IQs of children aged 7-8 years who were born very prematurely.

Nearly three quarters of these infants’ mothers provided expressed breastmilk for feeding. The children of these mothers ended up with a verbal IQ score six points higher than the rest. The results were independent of social class (Arch Dis Child Fetal Neonatal Edition, 2001; 84: F23-7).
