The study complied of 7,478 Irish children who were born full term, right from the time they were nine months old. These babies were assessed at three and again at five years of age. The evaluation stated that at the age of three, the parents of the children were given a questionnaire which needed evaluating vocabulary and problem solving ability to review cognition and behavior. Again at five years of age, the teachers as well as the parents of the same children were asked the same questions.

Despite the fact that the research analysts discovered that kids who had breast milk for six months or more has reduced rates of hyperactivity and enhanced critical thinking abilities at three, those distinctions were irrelevant when the children turned five.

Interim Benefits

A professor of mathematics at Essex County College and adviser to the organization Fed is Best, Dr. Brooke Orosz, said: "I think [the study] fits well in the body of literature that long-term benefits of breastfeeding look a whole lot smaller or non-existent if you properly control for your confounding variables."
