Purpose: To explore the relation between breastmilk nutrients and the cognitive abilities of breastfed infants.
Phase 1: Near 3 months of age child and mother saliva samples for DNA obtained with breast milk sample.
Phase 2: At 6 months of age child participates in electrophysiology session to test recognition memory.
Phase 3: At 26 or 38 months of age, children will complete behavioral, dietary, and physical assessments.

- Relation between recognition memory and maternal FADS genotype [ Time Frame: 6 months ]At 6 months of age, during the second session (Phase 2)
- Nutrient content of breastmilk as it relates to FADS genotype [ Time Frame: 3 to 4 months ]Sample provided in session 1 when the infant was 3-4 months old (Phase 1)
- Nutrient content of breastmilk as it relates to recognition memory [ Time Frame: 6 months ]At 6 months of age, during the second session (Phase 2)
- Relation between declarative memory and breastmilk nutrients [ Time Frame: 26 or 38 months ]At session 3, when the child was either 26 or 38 months of age (Phase 3)
- Relation between declarative memory and concurrent nutrients [ Time Frame: 26 or 38 months ]At session 3, when the child was either 26 or 38 months of age (Phase 3)
