Educational intervention to modify bottle-feeding behaviors among formula-feeding mothers in the WIC Program: impact on infant formula intake and weight gain

Kavanagh KF, et al. Educational intervention to modify bottle-feeding behaviors among formula-feeding mothers in the WIC Program: impact on infant formula intake and weight gain. J Nutr Educ Behav. Jul 2008;40(4):244-250.

The educational intervention assessed whether teaching formula-feeding caregivers about infant satiety cues would alter feeding practices and result in less weight gain. The intervention did not change bottle-feeding behaviors, and infant growth in the intervention group was greater than that in the control group.
