New Paper: Infant Feeding & Weight Gain

September 25, 2018

The latest research from Dr. Azad and the CHILD Study were published today in Pediatrics. The results show that breastfeeding was inversely associated with weight gain velocity, BMI, and overweight risk during infancy. This association was dose dependent, diminished with formula supplementation, and weaker when breast milk was fed from a bottle. The study was done in collaboration with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Azad Lab Research Reported by CNN Health

Dr. Azad was interviewed about our research on breastfeeding and infant weight gain in the CHILD Study. The story emphasizes our finding that “Every Feed Counts” (there was a dose-response relationship according to the duration and exclusivity of breastfeeding) and stresses that breastfeeding is a societal issue that requires support at the community and policy level.
