In an extremely low birth weight infant fed expressed own mother's milk exclusively during the first 6 months of life, introduction of a human milk fortifier resulted in improvement of biochemical alterations consistent with metabolic bone disease of prematurity. Attempts to discontinue fortification at 9 weeks (discharge) and 21 weeks of age induced deterioration of biochemical parameters, demonstrating a persistent need for mineral supplementation during the whole period of breastfeeding.
