6 Infant Formula - Clinical Evaluation, Its Uses, and Current Feeding Practices in the United States and Developing Countries Angel Cordano, MD, MPH In industrialized countries infants are being fed in a variety of ways with very similar results in their growth, development, and health. For most full-term newborns, breast-feeding is considered the ideal method when the mother wants to nurse and is capable of providing adequate amounts of milk for the infant's normal growth. Unfortunately, many women, particularly those from developing countries, may not be adequately nourished and may not provide enough breast milk to meet the infant's total nutrient needs by the third or fourth month.

It is necessary to assess the functions of these different factors as well as to determine whether any of these factors might be expected to survive in the infant's digestive tract. Finally, assuming that an immunologically active agent is capable of performing its action in the newborn, it is necessary to look at the evidence as to whether an actual significant immune effect is served. This latter task can be approached only through a review of the published epidemiologic studies on breast-feeding.
