Yes! Many, many studies show this to be true. The NIH has a report on this: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P MC2812877/

And you can find lots of other research on it:

Active User, very eHealthy
I think this is just a bump on the thread, hoping more moms will be reminded that it is indeed healthier, more convenient too as you do not need to wash and sterilize bottles so often, but also needing more 'sacrifice' when you get ur shirt wet with leaking milk, sometimes gorged breasts but ive experienced less bothersome than preparing milk at night when ur groggy.
