Breastfeeding May Reduce Risk of Crib Death

A new study from the University of Munster, in Germany, suggests that women who breastfeed significantly reduce the risk of their babies dying from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), also known as crib death. The study was based on the observation of over 1,000 infants and found that, after one month, babies who were fed exclusively with breast milk were 50% less likely to die of SIDS.
