In this study neither breastfeeding nor sleep duration were associated with weight gain during infancy.
Breastfeeding initiation, breastfeeding duration, age of introduction of complementary foods, and exposures to baby food fruits, vegetables, and meats among infants did not improve after the package changes. Significantly fewer infants received cereal in their bottles and fewer toddlers consumed vegetables and eggs after the package changes.
Study findings showed that 68% of women in the clinic breastfed greater than 6 months. The earlier the age of first visit to the clinic, the more likely the woman was to report that the Lactation Foundation influenced her confidence to breastfeed.
After the package change, usual energy intakes exceeded recommended levels for infants but fell below recommended levels for toddlers. Also after the package change, mean usual intake of vitamin D was below the EAR for toddlers, and mean usual intakes of vitamin A and zinc exceeded the Tolerable Upper Intake Level for all groups.
