Breastfeeding Is Protective Against SIDS And This Effect Is Stronger When Breastfeeding Is Exclusive

A very interesting study was published this week in Pediatrics on whether or not breastfeeding protected infants from SIDS and this was the conclusion:

Breastfeeding is protective against SIDS, and this effect is stronger when breastfeeding is exclusive. The recommendation to breastfeed infants should be included with other SIDS risk-related messages to both reduce the risk of SIDS and promote breastfeeding for its many other infant and maternal health benefits.

Here is a link to the study.

I read your blog from Sydney Australia and was previously a breastfeeding counsellor with the Australian Breastfeeding Association (formerly known as Nursing Mothers Association). Breastfeeding was taken off the list of things to do to avoid SIDS here some years ago, I hope this study reaches our SIDS foundation and they change the list. Kind regards, Julie B
