According to data from the Ministry of Health, children who were breastfed have IQs 4.3 points more
higher than those not given breast milk. IQ was also kept racing despite the
child no longer breast-fed. For after the comparison, at the age of three years,
breast-fed children have IQ of 4-6 points higher, and at age eight
years has an IQ 8.3 points higher than children who do not breast-fed.
Breastfeeding not only provides the best nutrition, but also warmth. So
emotional bonding, emotional attachment and the child's mother was awake. There are contacts
eyes, sweep, mother talk. During this time people see breastfeeding was an sich
nutrition, but does not. So breastfeeding is very powerful,''he said.
At the age of zero months, said Reni, nerve cells (neurons) in the infant brain most
just look straight course, only consists of the cell body and extension
from the tip of the cell body or dendrites. Baby's brain undergo a process of maturation when
of these cells formed a kind of stem that extends the so-called
axons. These axons form the ganglion are interconnected which makes
brain and all parts of the body communicate.
Installation of Sub Head of Nutrition Services Hospital Inpatient Room Hasan Sadikin
(RSHS), Bandung, Leni Yufrida Fayakun, said breast milk is the food
have the best nutrient content, which affects brain development.
The more mature brain nutrition of children by breastfeeding, she said,''will be easy memory
absorb various things.''
In addition, continuous stimulation at the age of 0-2 years, played a boost
Child's IQ significantly, reaching 15-30 points when he entered the age of 4-5 years.
Development''was actually still in the cup potential. That is, its potential
optimal growth. Because with milk and stimulation, a rapid sinapsnya
Age under three years, he said, is the golden period (golden age), because
brain growth reached 70-80 percent. The fact is, said Reni, who increasingly
prove the religious teaching that calls on mothers to breastfeed up to two years.
Because in addition to breast milk nutrition, there is also a stimulation of the mother at an important period
it. The remaining 20-30 percent are payable until the age of eight years, then
Therefore, Reni asked the government to develop a neighborhood health center is not solely
as a place to weigh the baby, but also as a place to teach the
stimulate the child's mother. ''Due to give birth to a generation of smart, the
her mother must be smart first. If the city had much access to information. But
if in the villages, the average child left to grow and develop so
The importance of golden period which some experts set at the age below
three years (toddlers) scientist Sigmund Freud actually set at the time under
five years (toddlers) because the child's development is very rapid. In the golden period
, the absorption ability of children even reach 50 percent of which continues to decline
in subsequent years. When the golden period was utilized
simulation, Reni said the child's brain development, the better.
Nodes''will be more and more nervous,''he said. This stimulation is not
complicated. Senses are stimulated only distinguish smells, sounds, and other. Increasingly
large, introduced to numbers, letters, and so forth.
