Effect of Early Limited Formula Use on Breastfeeding Outcomes
The aim of this study is to conduct a pilot randomized controlled trial of the effect of early limited formula supplementation on breastfeeding-related outcomes for infants with high early weight loss. The investigators will enroll 30 exclusively breastfeeding infants at 24-48 hours of age and will randomly assign them to early limited formula supplementation following nursing (intervention group) or to no formula feeding (control group). Both groups will receive intensive lactation support. Outcome variables will include breastfeeding status on day-of-life 8, weight nadir, breastfeeding self-efficacy, maternal satisfaction, and exclusive and partial breastfeeding at 1-3 months. The hypothesis for this study is that early limited formula supplementation might help infants with early weight loss avoid eventual weight loss ≥ 10% and associated breastfeeding problems.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether infants fed a formula with protein levels different than a standard infant formula have similar growth and development.
To evaluate the use of a hypoallergenic infant formula containing an extensively hydrolyzed protein source for routine nutrition.
The primary objective of the study is to compare the growth of infants fed standard infant formula with infants fed a reduced calorie and protein formula.
In this study the investigators want to evaluate the satiety of two infant formulas, one containing prebiotics and the other containing synbiotics. Rate of weight gain, a proxy measurement...
