Many mothers or expectant mothers are worried about getting fat after giving birth and while breastfeeding her baby. Yet a new study in England suggested that the more babies a woman who had indicated that her body mass index will decrease as long as the babies were breastfeeding itself.
Women who breastfeed their babies for at least six months will have a body mass index (body mass index or BMI) was lower when he reached the 50′s than women who do not. This is because the study found that breast-feeding every six months so his BMI would fall by one percent.
Breastfeeding is good for the baby and mother. On the one hand, the mother will get the ideal body shape back more quickly if breastfeeding is natural. These mothers were less likely to develop breast cancer.
Breastfed babies will have fewer ear infections, allergies and do not tend to obesity and a number of studies show that breastfed babies will behave better and higher IQ.
The Million Women Study, funded by the Medical Research Council and Cancer Research UK is tracking 740 000 female participants who have gone through menopause. The average age of participants was 57 years old with an average BMI of 26 or less are classified overweight.
The study also found that the average BMI for women with no children is 25.6 while women who had four or more children the average BMI of 27.2.
“Our research shows that only six months of breastfeeding women in the UK it can reduce the risk of obesity later in life. One percent reduction in BMI may seem small, but if this is happening all over the UK population could mean there will be a reduction in mortality due to premature birth 10 10 000 less per year because of conditions associated with obesity such as diabetes, heart disease and some cancers, “said one researcher, Professor Dame Valerie liberal, Director of the Cancer Epidemiology Unit at Oxford University as reported by the Telegraph.
This study leader, Dr. Kirsty Bobrow, also from Oxford University said, “This study adds to evidence that the benefits of breastfeeding can also be felt by the mother, even 30 years after birth. Pregnant women should be aware of these benefits to help choose the right foods and baby healthy. “
