Children of mothers who had breastfed for at least six months but also used bottles were 22 percent less obese than those who were never breastfed.

The mothers of the children were asked if they had breastfed for how long and whether they would have done so exclusively without feeding their baby other liquids such as. B. water.
The results, available for up to 16 countries and nearly 30,000 fully breast-feeding children, show that breastfeeding less than six months was 12 percent less than never breastfed. 19659002] Children who were breastfed exclusively for this period were five percent less obese.
The children of the heaviest three percent of their age group who were well above the expected weight for their height and age were classified as obese.
