A Smart Start for Baby

Start your baby’s academic career way before she packs her first backpack. A recent study from the University of Colorado linked breast-feeding to better HS grades. Looking at 126 siblings, some who were breast fed and other who were not, from 59 families, they found on average the breast fed groups’ grade points were higher than those not breast fed.

Dr. Daniel Rees, the study’s co-author says those who were breast fed seemed smarter and healthier and as a result perform better in school. This study was also a first of its kind to look at siblings in a study, which takes out the potential for socioeconomic standings, home environment, and parental intelligence.
