It is known that breast milk is the best source of nutrition for infants. Breast milk is beneficial to both their physical and mental development.

New researches have shown that breast feeding has a very good impact on mothers as well as they experience less stress than the bottle-feeding mothers. This means that mother who breast feed will focus more on their children and have more energy for activities such as attending to their infants and producing milk which is an obvious gain for the children.
In the study, the mothers were exposed to different types of stressful situations ranging from "emotional or relevant" – watching a video about hurt and lost children, to "non-threatening or non-relevant" – such as public speaking and math problems. Stress was determined by measuring the levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) in their saliva. The results showed that the breast feeding mothers were less stressful. Those who had breast-fed several children had even lower stress levels.

Researchers hope that the results from this study will help in the treatment of post-natal depression.
