Exclusive breast-feeding lowers risks of conduct disorders in children
Although previous research has demonstrated the benefits of exclusive breast-feeding for early child health, the long-term benefits for child development have not been clear.

Now, a new study suggests longer duration of exclusive breast-feeding are associated with fewer conduct disorders in later childhood. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommend exclusive breast-feeding (EBF) for the first 6 months of life, at which point solid foods can be introduced to complement breast-feeding for up to 2 years.
Breast milk provides infants with all the nutrients they need to grow. In addition, it contains antibodies that help protect babies from childhood illnesses such as diarrhea and pneumonia.
