MRI scans of 133 children ages 10 months to 4 years showed that those who were exclusively breast-fed for at least three months had increased growth in some parts of the brain at age 2 compared with babies given formula or a combination of formula and breast milk. Breast-feeding for more than a year was associated with substantially more brain development, particularly in areas responsible for managing motor skills, than breast-feeding for less than a year, according to the study in the journal NeuroImage.
