Breast-feeding to support resilience to stress

SUNDAY, Jan. 6, 2007 (HealthDay News) — “Breast-feeding is considered a great way for a mother to form a close bond with her infant. And now there’s evidence to suggest it may also help kids be more resilient to stress.”Conclusions include that breast feeding is associated with resilience against the psychosocial stress linked with parental divorce/separation. This could be because breast feeding is a marker of exposures related to maternal characteristics and parent–child interaction.

The study findings were published in the journal Archives of Disease in Childhood.
