Breastmilk and formula may enable longer breastfeeding

(May 17, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

 From California - Combining formula feeding and breast-feeding may enable mothers to breastfeed longer, according to a report published in Pediatrics. Researchers studied 40 underweight babies, randomly assigning the infants to either breastfeeding plus formula feeding of breastfeeding alone. After 3 months, results showed that infants receiving both formula and breastmilk were nearly 2x more likely to still receive breastmilk than those who received breastmilk alone at birth.
