Although breast milk has been shown to have many benefits, it is now known that breast milk keeps the newborn’s heart strong.
Especially babies who open their eyes in eight months or less instead of nine months.
Dr. Afif al-Khafash, of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, says breast milk is the lifeblood of a baby.
However, for the first time, a link has been found between the heart of premature babies and breast milk.
He says that breast milk plays an important role in the health and heart health of a baby in its first year.
It is a fact that children born in a shorter period of time have a weaker heart than those born on time.
It has also been observed that such children may develop heart disease later on.
They can also increase the risk of high blood pressure and heart failure. That is why heart disease is the leading cause of death in such children.
In this regard, 80 such children were surveyed who had opened their eyes to the world before their period.
At the time, he was exclusively breastfed and in just one year, his heart function improved significantly.
This positive state of affairs remained in them until they fully recovered and grew up.
Experts found that babies who were breastfed by their mothers as soon as they were born improved their heart structure and function by the age of one.
But this did not improve in babies who were given formula (canned) milk experimentally.
Details of this important study were published in the August 30 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
“Premature babies can have many heart defects. But breast milk may be the best cure for this, as it corrects the hearts of such children and makes them look like the hearts of healthy children, ”said Dr. Afif.
He further said that this quality could not be created in the hearts of the children who were given other types of milk besides their mother.
After this important research, we can say that while breast milk has thousands of benefits, it also has healing for the baby’s heart.
Therefore, it is very important for mothers to encourage breastfeeding as much as possible.
