Breast Milk Helps in Better Brain Growth and Development in Preterm Infants

Parent Interventions

Pre term babies who are fed breast milk are likely to have better brain growth and development, according to a new research report.

The research was conducted among pre-term babies with a gestational age of 32 weeks and having weight of less than 1.5 kg. It was found that breast fed babies have much greater levels of inositol and higher creatine levels in cerebellar spectra compared to infants who were fed formula food.The more number of days the infants were given breastmilk as primary food, both choline nad creatine levels had gone up. Choline is a water-soluble nutrient.


The new research highlights the importance of feeding pre term babies exclusively on breast milk for the growth of the brain which will determine the cognitive development and achievements of the child as it grows up.
