CDC study: Breast-fed babies regulate feeding better

May 10, 2010

The new study determined babies who are fed directly from the breast in early infancy tend to consume less later in infancy than their bottle fed counterparts.

Scientists say, the more infants were fed with a bottle, the more likely that they would empty a bottle in late infancy.

Researchers say parents who feed their baby expressed breast milk or formula with a bottle need to pay special attention to their baby's feeding cues.
