Breastfeeding not only boosts children’s chances of climbing the social ladder, but it also reduces the chances of downwards mobility, suggests a large study published online in the Archives of Disease in Childhood. The findings, produced by ESRC-funded researchers in the International Centre for Lifecourse Studies in Society and Health at UCL, are based on changes in the social class of two groups of individuals born in 1958 (17,419 people) and in 1970 (16,771 people). The researchers asked each of the children’s mothers, when their child was five or seven years old, whether they had breastfed him/her.
