I am smarter than my dh. I was formula fed, while my dh was completely breastfed. Genetics also play a big role.

Unfortunately you can never take the same child and show her intelligence w/breast milk and without. I guess the closest you could come would be to breastfeed one identical twin and FF the other (like you would actually do that-RIGHT!)
I'm a full believer in all the benefits of BM, somewhat of a lactivist, but the study does somewhat mention that those mom's who BF longer are in themselves generally smarter, so genetics would play a large role.

I'm not saying I agree or disagree...but I have my case study!

My ods was not bf. Tried...failed....anyway....he receives gifted services.

My toddler...given maybe 6 total oz. of formula in his 16 months of life (they gave him formula while I was recovering from c/s and I had a latch issue...but I didn't give up this time)....he's right on track for his development.

I do believe that environment plays a role as well as hereditary.
