We compared the hematologic data, serum biochemical and immunoglobulin values at 1 month of age and anthropometric variables at 1, 4, and 6 months of age between breast-fed and formula-fed infants.
METHODS
Healthy full-term infants whose parents agreed with our study were enrolled. The hematologic and serum biochemical and immunoglobulin values were measured at birth and at 1 month of age. Anthropometric variables were measured at birth and 1, 4, and 6 months of age.
RESULTS
In general, the hematologic and serum biochemical and immunoglobulin values were not different at 1 month of age between breast-fed and formula-fed infants. And there were no differences in growth between breast-fed and formula-fed infants from 0 to 6 months.
CONCLUSION
There were no differences in growth and almost same values of hematology, serum biochemistry, immunoglobulin between breast-fed and formula-fed infants.
