The cognitive benefits of breast feeding comes from the EPA and DHA levels in the breast milk. If they are low in the mother’s breast milk, the cognitive benefits will also be low.  However, the EPA and DHA supplementation needs to be maintained and even increased as the child ages, or all of the early benefits will be reversed as suggested by this study.
