    I'm sure it absolutely would. Not all breastfed babies will take a bottle though and there are other ways to bond. My daughter is very fussy but she enjoys cuddles and walks around the garden with her dad.
    It is helpful if babies can take a bottle in my opinion but yeah.. not always possible.

    I *think* the theory is that breast fed babies often wake more (breast milk digests quicker than formula) which stops bub from going into really deep sleep which can lead to a baby having apneas (sp?)

    Breast milk vomit is also often lighter and smoother which decreases the chance of asphyxiation.


    I find this 'fact' hard to believe tbh,
    A study released last year or so suggested that babies who die from sids have issues with their seratonin levels which in turn affects their sleep / wake ability and breathing control during deep sleep

    I heard that but I don't think that changes the fact that breastfed babies are at half the risk

    And what's to say that breastmilk doesn't help regulate serotonin? There are hormones in breast milk and a lot of those pathways are intertwined.

    Also many factors would be involved in Sids it wouldn't all come down to serotonin.
