8 QuestionWhich of the following statements about infant nutrition is true?Human milk contains more casein than infant formulas.Infants who receive increased whey protein have been shown to grow better than those who receive primarily casein.Iron is absorbed better from cow milk formulas than from human milk.Lactose-free formulas result in decreased absorption of calcium.There are no apparent negative effects from the addition of DHA and ARA to formulas.

10 Benefits of Whey Protein Promotes more rapid gastric emptying.Consists of soluble proteins that are easily digested.Lines the GI tract and plays a role in host defense.
11 Question Is iron supplementation required at birth? NoWhen should you start iron supplementation?All babies (including breastfed) should receive supplementation in their food (iron-fortified cereal) by 6 months of age.In FT infants, iron stores become depleted by 4-6 months of age.
12 Dietary Recommendations IRONPre-term: 2 mg/kg/d at 1-12 moFull-term: 1 mg/kg/d at 4-6 moIron Fortified Formula: 12 mg/LCow’s milk has 0.5mg/L of iron.
13 Dietary Recommendations VITAMIN D400 IU/dWho should receive Vitamin D?All BF infants, unless they are weaned to at least 1000 ml/d (33 oz) of Vit. D fortified formula.Formula fed infants ingesting ≤ 1000 ml/d of Vit. D fortified formula.Children/adolescents who get no sun light, ≤ 1 L of Vit. D fortified milk, no MVI.

30 QuestionWhat type of milk would you recommend a breastfeeding infant that develops “rash and hives” while eating yogurt and cream cheese, and tolerates foods such as eggs and bread without any problems?Trial of Soy Milk–Based FormulaIf no improvement switch to an extensively hydrolyzed or AA-based formulaMilk protein allergy, IgE mediated reaction
31 Soy Protein Formulas Lactose Free Contain higher concentrations of protein, AA, calcium, phosphorus, zinc and iron.Primary CarbohydrateGlucose polymers from corn syrup solids or maltodextrin

57 Cow’s Milk Introduce until 12 months of age!!!! Low iron content. May increase fecal blood loss in some infants.May cause hypocalcemia.High protein and electrolyte content → high renal solute.Lower caloric content (19 cal/oz)
58 Principles of Infant Feeding Number of Meals a Day0-3 mo: bottles4-6 mo: 5 bottles + 1 solid meal6-8 mo: 4 bottles + 2 solid meals9-12 mo: 3 bottles + 3 solid meals
59 Infant Nutrition: Solid foods CerealStrained VegetableStrained MeatsStrained fruitsTable FoodJuices and dessertsVitamins and Minerals
60 Solid Foods Introduce at 4-6 months age Has good head control No extrusion reflexSits with supportHas doubled birth weightSeems hungry after 32 oz milk
61 QuestionWhat is the MOST likely outcome of introducing solid foods at an age of ≤ 3 months?Accelerates the development of oral motor skillsHelps the infant sleep through the nightIncreases the risk of food allergiesIncreases the risk of GERIncreases the risk of GI infections
62 Solid Food Introduce rice cereal first. Advance to single vegetables. Add one food at a time.Feed same for 3-5 days.Combination dinners last.
63 Infant Nutrition 0-4 mo: 100% total calories from milk 6-8 mo: 65% calories from milk33% calories from solids.9-12 mo: 50/50 milk and solids
