UPDATES:PREEMIES GET SMARTER ON MOTHER’S MILK

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).
