Leave it to the British, but they are often ahead of us here in the U.S. with much of their health research and implementation.

As reported in the journal, Thorax, after the completion of a 10 year study, following children from birth to their 10th year, it appears that children who have been breastfed have a better developed set of lungs and lung capacity.

Anyone who has ever breastfed knows that there is some major sucking going on when the baby is fed. On average, breastfed babies need to generate three times the sucking power of bottle-fed babies and feeding sessions usually last for a longer period.

Currently, manufacturers are looking into making bottle that would require this additional sucking effort.
