Overview: The multitude of benefits of breastfeeding for both mother and baby are well documented. However, we’ve seen mixed evidence for the relationship between breastfeeding and certain childhood lung conditions, with some studies suggesting an increase in risk. A recent study found that exclusive breastfeeding was associated with decreased lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI), asthma, and allergic rhinitis. A potential connection between these conditions, breastfeeding, and the infant’s gut microbiome was also found. Join us as we discuss these findings and how to incorporate them into your practice to improve the health of women and infants.
