  • Breast-feeding
    and Cognitive Development: A Meta-analysis


    Anderson JW, Johnstone BM, Remley DT (Vet Affairs
    Med Ctr; Univ of Kentucky, Lexington; Eli Lilly and
    company, Indianapolis; Ind; et al)

    Am
    J Clin Nutr 70: 525- 535, 1999

     

    This
    is a meta- analysis of 11 studies on this topic. It
    revealed that significantly greater levels of
    cognitive function occurred in breast-fed than in
    formula fed children at 6 to 23 months of age. These
    differences were stable at successive ages. The
    differences were greater in low- birth weight
    infants than in normal- weight infants. The
    cognitive developmental benefits increased with
    duration.

      

  • Feeding
    Strategies for Premature Infants: Beneficial
    Outcomes of Feeding Fortified Human Milk Versus
    Preterm formula

    Schanler
    RJ, Shulman RJ, Lau C ( Baylor College of Medicine,
    Houstan)

    Pediatrics
    103: 1150- 1157, 1999

      

    Sixty
    two premature infants were fed more than 50 mL/
    kg/day of fortified human milk (FHM), and 46 were
    fed preterm formula (PF). It was observed that
    infants given FHM were discharged from hospital
    earlier, despite their significantly slower rates of
    weight gain. Also these infants had a lower
    incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis and late
    onset sepsis.

      

    Thus
    unique properties of human milk appear to promote
    improved host defense and gastrointestinal function
    compared with formula feeding which outweighs the
    slower growth rate of preterm infants given FHM.
