I very quickly read The Breast and the Brightest: Does nursing affect your kids IQ? on Slate and wanted to share. There’s some interesting research about compounding the effects of genes by certain experiences; a sort of [Nature] X [Nurture] math equation.
Apparently if your baby has certain genes, then nursing really does give an IQ boost… and if not, well you’re doing it for all those other good reasons that keep getting touted everywhere: convenience, nurturing, guilt, shared immunities, indecent exposure, etc.
Let me know what you think.
