According to multivariate linear regression analysis, iron in milk was positively associated with vitamin A in milk and with smoking but negatively associated with timing of breast milk donation (P < .001). These results indicate that iron concentration in milk of Brazilian donors may be influenced by nutritional factors and smoking. PMID: 20032311Cited by: 7
Results: The mean (±SD) iron concentration in breast milk in the intravenous and oral groups was 0.72 ± 0.27 and 0.40 ± 0.18 mg/L at three days (p < 0.001) and 0.47 ± …Cited by: 3
2020. 9. 9.· Iron is added to formula at a higher concentration than breast milk to compensate for the fact that the iron supplements added to formula milk are much harder for a baby to absorb. Babies can absorb 50% of the iron in breast milk, compared with only 2-9% of the iron in artificial milk and 4% from fortified baby cereals 4 .
2020. 9. 21.· Breast milk contains very little iron; therefore, the American Academy of Pediatrics external icon recommends that infants who only receive breast milk (exclusively breastfeed) will need a supplement of iron each day at a dose of 1 milligram of iron for each kilogram of body weight; this supplement of iron should start at 4 months of age.
IntroductionSubjects and MethodsResultsDiscussionThe World Health Assembly recommends the exclusive breastfeeding of infants until 6 mo of age and continued breastfeeding with appropriate complementary feeding until 2 y of age (1). Iron deficiency and zinc deficiency are public health concerns during infancy, especially in developing countries (2, 3). Iron deficiency in infancy may lead to poor psychomotor development (4, 5), and zinc deficiency may lead to stunted growth (6) and compromised immune function (7). Copper deficiency, as well as copper toxicity…
The results indicated that infants fed breast milk during the entire first six to seven months of life attained greater iron stores than did those fed a cow milk formula. Breast-fed infants absorbed an average of 49% of a trace dose of extrinsic iron administered during a breast feeding in contrast to about 10% reported to be absorbed from cow milk under similar conditions.
Breast milk iron--a declining concentration during the course of lactation. Siimes MA, Vuori E, Kuitunen P. The present investigation is the first longitudinal study of the concentration of iron in breast milk and is based on 229 milk samples obtained from 27 mothers during their period of lactation up to 9 months.Cited by: 164
quently observed. Dietary assessment revealed lower intakes of iron (10.2 2.5 mg/d) and zinc (10.4 2.2 mg/d) than estimated requirements. The breast milk concentration of iron, zinc and copper was 0.43 0.15 mg/L, 0.56 (0.37, 0.82) mg/L and 0.19 0.05 mg/L, respectively. The breast milk concentration of iron, zinc and copper was not correlated to the
2011. 10. 12.· If you try to meet your infant’s iron requirement on breast milk alone, she would have to consume between 4 and 13 liters of breast milk per day, depending on your baby’s efficiency of iron absorption from breast milk (estimates range from 15-50% absorption).
The most abundant proteins in breastmilk are casein, α-lactalbumin, lactoferrin, secretory immunoglobulin IgA, lysozyme and serum albumin. 4. Fat is the most highly variable macronutrient of breastmilk. The more full of milk the lactating breast is, the lower the overall fat concentration in …
