Babies who were breast-fed for a longer period of time during their first year of life scored higher on language-recognition tests at age 3 and on IQ tests at age 7 than did those who were not breast-fed, a study in the journal JAMA Pediatrics showed. For every additional month of breast-feeding, children's scores on language and IQ exams slightly increased. Researchers said that fish consumption while breast-feeding did not significantly affect children's future cognitive development.
