dc.description.abstractTo compare the growth rates of infants receiving breast milk only, formula only or the combination of breast milk and formula, 36 infants (14 males, 22 females) were studied longitudinally from birth to 4 months. The infants were normal, full-term patients of a pediatric medical practice, selected on the basis of willingness to participate. Weight, length and head circumference were measured at each office visit. The mean growth values of each feeding group for each sex were statistically compared at birth, two and four months. No statistically significant differences were found in growth rates between any of the feeding groups for males or females at any age. All infant feeding groups had normal growth patterns as compared to same sex National Center for Health Statistics growth curves. Parents choosing one of these three milk feeding regimes, should be confident that their infant will receive adequate nutrition to sustain normal growth through at least four months of age.en_US
