Breast Feeding Mothers Less Likely to Get Hip Fractures

There are many benefits of breast feeding both to the baby and to the mother.  Women who breast feed are less likely to develop osteoporosis and therefore less likely later in life to fracture bones. Because falls in later life often result in fractured hips, we can say, that one way to help prevent fractured hips when you are older is to breast feed when you are younger. Pretty neat!
