Breastfeeding and Snoring: A Birth Cohort Study
The relationship between breastfeeding and snoring in childhood has not been studied before. A recent study prospectively recorded data on infant feeding practices throughout the first year of life. Snoring status and witnessed sleep apnoea were measured at age 8 years by parent-completed questionnaires. The results showed that habitual snoring was reported in 18.8% of the sample, and the researchers witnessed apnoea in 2.7%. Breastfeeding for longer than one month decreases the risk of habitual snoring and witnessed apnoeas in this cohort of children with a family history of asthma.
