Breastfed babies are more irritable12th January 2012
New research has suggested that breastfed babies are more irritable, cry more and are harder to soothe than bottle-fed babies.
The Medical Research Council study, which focused on 316 babies aged three months, also claims the irritability caused by breastfeeding is a natural part of communication between mothers and their babies, rather than being a sign of distress and the MRC continues to support the idea that "breast is best". While bottle-fed babies appear more content, the study found they may be over-nourished and gain weight too quickly.
