Overweight infants are more likely to be overweight children. In formula-fed infants, the size of the bottle may be associated with the weight gain. Researchers found when infants were fed from a 6 or 8-ounce bottle they weighed significantly more at 6 months than those using bottles smaller than 6 ounces. This was true after adjustment for birth weight, socioeconomic characteristics and time between visits.

LifeTip: To help prevent childhood obesity, choose a bottle smaller than 6 ounces when feeding formula. Attend “Lose Weight Naturally” with Dr. David DeRose for more recommendations.
