Breast-feeding for more than six months was associated with higher scores in cognitive, language and motor development at 18 months of age, according to a Greek study involving 540 mothers and their children. Children who were breast-fed for longer than six months had an average cognitive score of 104, compared with 97 among children who were never breast-fed. The findings appear in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
