Epilepsy is very often an inherited condition. Your son has inherited his epilepsy from his dad's side of the family. Breast feeding will not protect against developing epilepsy.Breast feeding is indeed very important for the development of a normal and good protective immune system in babies and young children. So it is certainly fair to say that the fact that you breastfed your son certainly helped to develop his immune system and may explain why he was never troubled by repeated episodes of tonsillitis and other respiratory infections in the first four years of his life.
