what can you do to increase intelligence

Kids who were breastfed as babies outperform their formula-fed peers on mental-development tests. Babies learn more when caregivers comfort them, smile at them, talk to them, and play with them. A baby treated this way is more likely to develop more skills more quickly than a child who receives less interactions.
