New Study: The Bond in Breastfeeding Lasts Beyond Toddler Years
Past studies have shown that breastfeeding has numerous benefits, one of which is the unique bond which it builds between mother and child. However, a new study has shown that the bond from breastfeeding may actually last longer than some previously had thought. The study, published in the journal Developmental Psychology, researchers found that the bond from breastfeeding can actually exceed infancy, and even the toddler stage. This bond was analyzed by the maternal sensitivity that occurred throughout the child’s life.
