When each infant’s feeding history for the first month of life was reconstructed, it was determined that in 98% of all cases natural breast-feeding had been attempted in the first week of life, and also that 88% of the infants had received milk formula at least once between birth and 1 month of age. With ... initially breast-fed. Second, a high percentage of these children received artificial milk during the first month of life.
