Breastfeeding reduces the risk of thirst


We still do not know exactly what is causing the baby, who had previously believed to be healthy, to be found dead in her bed. Although sudden-death respiratory arrest is indicated by respiratory monitors, the real solution would be effective prophylaxis.

For some reasons, experts have suggested that they may be exposed to unexpected deaths: for example, babies are not recommended to lay in their abdomen, especially when sleeping indoors. The risk is increased even if the parents smoke or have smoked during pregnancy and if the baby has had difficulty breathing after childbirth. Recent European surveys have found risk factors such as parent unemployment, but among the most widespread, breastfeeding has not been listed. For this reason, a major study published in the Pediatrics Journal of Pediatrics analyzing previous research findings shows that breastfeeding, especially exclusive breastfeeding, is associated with a lower risk.

Protection from illness, human proximity and love: Breastfeeding is a protection for the baby for multiple reasons


One of the fun effects of breastfeeding is that it reduces the risk of post-natal death - says dr. Fern R. Hauck, Associate Professor of Family Medicine, Virginia Medical University, Charlottesville. "However, it has not been known until now that there is a correlation between breastfeeding protection and the reduced risk of thirst because of inconsistent results. The aim of the most recent literature analysis was to examine the relationship between breastfeeding and weaning. The researchers looked for articles published in the Medline Database between 1966 and 2009 that contained data on breastfeeding and fetal death. Out of the 288 articles dealing with the topic, 18 have proved to be suitable for inclusion in the analytical examination. The results clearly show that infant mortality is significantly less frequent in breastfed infants than in artificially fed infants. The risk is already less than half that if the baby is breastfeeding at least, but in the case of exclusively breastfed babies, the risk is still lower: about a quarter of the breastfed infants. However, one of the limitations of the study is that only a few articles have reported on the duration of breastfeeding.

Staying safe!
It is also important for a human child to stay alive


Breastfeeding protects against throat death, and efficacy is even greater if exclusive breastfeeding standards are the authors of the study. The notion that the baby has to be suckled by his mother should be included in the information about the possibilities of reducing the whooper fish, not only because it is more than just breastfeeding.
In the case of black population, breastfeeding has the same positive effect on reducing the incidence of throat deaths as other population groups, the researchers suggest. - However, there are significantly fewer black and other ethnic minorities as well as mothers who are disadvantaged and start breastfeeding their children longer. It is in these groups that foxes occur most frequently. Therefore, it is vital that breastfeeding measures address these high risk groups (as well).
