Re: A cheer for exclusive breastfeeders

BF mom here, but the study about the raised IQ is coming out to be a genetic factor more then a BF one. Bf does put a play in it.. but genetics oversteps it.

The individuals that Bf normally already have a higher IQ and education, therefor genetics is more in play. There is another study that shows an isolated gene. If the child has this gene, then the child has a higher chance of bf increasing the IQ. But, if the child does not have the gene, there is no change.
