Of them 56.5 percent had consumed prelacteal feed while 79.5 percent consumed infant formula. Compared with infants who were exclusively breastfed, these children were 1.5 times more likely to suffer from adverse health outcomes, including hospitalization, the study found. It concluded that prelacteal feeding and early formula feeding before hospital discharge are associated with higher risks of infection and hospital admission in Vietnamese infants. Support for exclusive breastfeeding should be provided to mothers to avoid these adverse consequences, it added.
