During breast suckling, the undulating rhythmic elevation and lowering of the jaw stimulates lower jaw growth, during the most rapid period of jaw growth.

Your Jaws ~ Your Life (page 46)

Breastfeeding helps jaws and airways to develop properly. Bottle and pacifier use can deform jaws and airways. Breast suckling promotes good forward jaw growth and development. Bottle pacifier and finger sucking put backward forces on the jaws during one of the most important periods of rapid forward growth. Dentists should advocate breastfeeding for about 6 to 12 months.

Research shows breastfed infants have considerably less illness and fewer lifelong health problems. Some of the health benefits of breastfeeding are due to better jaw and airway formation, although most credit has been given to the content of a nursing mother's milk.
