A very recent study reveals that breastfeeding infants in a minimum span of 6 months after birth reduces the babies symptoms of having asthma.
According to the study, babies who weren’t breastfeed within the earliest 6 months after birth showed signs and symptoms of asthma like difficulty breathing, wheezing and persistent cough with phlegm.

Personally, as experienced, I guess this study is kind’a true because my nephew, Didong, who wasn’t breastfed by my elder sister, Bait, has been suffering from asthma having attacks and bouts of difficulty of breathing, coughing with phlegm and wheezing. In fact, since he was a kid, like one year old, he always been admitted to the hospital due to asthma.
So, to every mommies, mothers, out there, if possible, try to give time to breast feed your babies even just up until your babies would be 6-month old. But if you can make it until your baby reaches 2 years old, that is far better then.
