BACKGROUND/AIMS Fatty acid (FA) composition varies over the course of the day and during lactation. The aim of this study was to evaluate FA composition and its compositional stability in human milk, from day 7 to week 16 of lactation. METHODS Human milk was collected from all feedings over 24 h at day 7 and weeks 4, 8, 12 and 16 of lactation in 31(More)

Objective: To determine the prevalence of atlanto-axial instability in children with Down syndrome and its association with the presence of signs and symptoms of(More)
Fat in human milk varies during a feed, during the day and throughout the period of lactation. Fatty acid (FA) composition varies over the course of the day and during lactation.Aim: To evaluate FA composition in human milk, from 7 days (transitional milk) to 16 weeks of lactation (mature milk) and to assess the composition stability of these FA throughout(More)
