Breast is best: and here's another reason why
About the author: 

We all know that breastfeeding is best for our babies for all sorts of healthy reasons

We all know that breastfeeding is best for our babies for all sorts of healthy reasons. Now researchers have added another benefit to the tally - breastfeeding acts as a pain reliever.

Researchers from a hospital in Poissy, France found that babies who were breastfed seemed able to cope better with pain if doctors had to perform a minor procedure.

They tested the theory by testing breastfed babies, those given 1 ml of sterile water, and those given glucose and a pacifier. They found that the breastfed group showed significantly lower signs of pain than the other two groups. (Source: British Medical Journal, 2003; 326: 13-5).
