Breastfed Children May Have Improved Social Growth

Were you breastfed as a child?

If so, it may affect how you interact as an adult.

A new study finds babies who are breastfed are 41% more likely to move up the social ladder as adults compared to those who are given formula.

Also, the longer a child is breastfed, the greater their chances of social mobility.

The results are based on a group of adults born in the 1930's.

However, infant formula has changed through the years and experts say more research is needed.
