Breastfeeding Reduces Risk of Childhood Allergies
Breastfeeding your infant for 4 to 6 months after birth has been shown to reduce the child's risk for both eczema and cow's milk allergy, according to Prof. Halken, Chair of the 2011 Pediatric Allergy and Asthma Meeting.
Halken says the development of allergy is a result of a complex interaction between genetic and environmental factors that may protect against or promote its development. Factors such as pollution have also been linked to the increase in allergic diseases during childhood in developed countries.
Allergy symptoms vary with age, and some symptoms disappear, only to be replaced with other symptoms. To read more of what Prof Halken has to say about avoiding childhood asthma and allergies on ScienceDaily, >Click Here.>
Even adoptive mothers and mothers with a poor milk supply can breastfeed. Prescription domperidone is a gastroparesis medication that has increased lactation as a side effect.
