Breastfeeding to Reduce Risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

Breastfeeding has numerous benefits and is suggested as the sole food for the first six months after birth. A recent study has found that breastfeeding for a minimum of 2 months can reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) by half. The study determined that mothers do not need to breastfeed exclusively for their baby to get the benefit, potentially good news for moms who can't or choose not to rely solely on breastfeeding.
