Pay no attention to the old wives' tales that claims that breastfeeding increases or worsens migraines. Researchers from the Headache Clinic, Pain Evaluation and Treatment Institute at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center say that there's little scientific evidence to support this belief. Researchers followed 78 migraine sufferers throughout their pregnancies and for three months after they delivered. They found no difference in headache intensity or frequency among the women who breastfed compared to those who didn't.
