Three hundred and one babies were surveyed for one year in an infant welfare clinic in North London. There was no significant difference at six months and one year of age in the mean weights of babies breast-fed for more than one month and those not breast-fed at all.
At six months, the mean weight of those babies given solid food before three months of age was significantly higher than the mean weight of those babies given solids only after three months of age. This difference had disappeared by one year of age.
