Abstract Objective To investigate the effect of different feeding patterns on the occurrence of diseases among infants. Design Data on socio-economic status, feeding patterns before 6 months (exclusive breast-feeding (EBF); mixed feeding with breast milk and formula (MBF); exclusive formula-feeding (EFF)) and illness of infants were collected via face-to-face interviews. The proportions of infants who had ever been ill or hospitalized and their potential influence factors were investigated…

Breastfeeding and the Risk of Infant Illness in Asia: A Review
Overall, breastfeeding when compared to the use of infant formula, is associated with significantly lower rates of diarrhoeal disease and lower respiratory tract infection, with a reduction of 50% or more to be expected, especially in infants under six months of age.
Mixed milk feeding: a systematic review and meta-analysis of its prevalence and drivers.
A shared and aligned definition of MMF will help shed light on this feeding practice and evaluate its influence on the duration of total breastfeeding, as well as on infants' nutrition status, growth, development, and health status in the short and long terms.
Prenatal exposure to bisphenol A and risk of allergic diseases in early life
Prenatal exposure to BPA may potentially increase the risk of allergic diseases at very early life in female infants, particularly in mothers of infants with allergic diseases.

Infant-feeding practices and their relationship with diarrheal and other diseases in Huascar (Lima), Peru.
Exclusively breast-fed infants tended to have fewer skin infections during the initial months of life and older infants who continued to breast-feed had fewer infections than those who did not, and none of the results could be explained by differences in the socioeconomic status of the infants' families.
Exclusive breastfeeding reduces acute respiratory infection and diarrhea deaths among infants in Dhaka slums.
The reduction of ARI deaths underscores the broad-based beneficial effect of exclusive breastfeeding in prevention of infectious diseases beyond its role in reducing exposure to contaminated food, which may have contributed to the strong protection against diarrhea deaths.
[Cohort study of 684 pairs of mother-and-child allergic diseases].
The risk factors for allergic disorders in infants included allergy in either parent and dietary factors of the infants themselves (prematurely adding other foods).
Infant feeding patterns and risks of death and hospitalization in the first half of infancy: multicentre cohort study.
The finding that the risks of death are similar for infants who are predominantly breastfed and those who are exclusively breastfed suggests that in settings where rates of predominant breastfeeding are already high, promotion efforts should focus on sustaining these high rates rather than on attempting to achieve a shift from predominant breastfeeding to exclusive breastfeeding.
Prevalence and correlates of diarrhea
It is demonstrated that the acute diarrhea is major problem among children in rural Pakistan and Appropriate intervention programmes should be formulated focused on identified risk factors.
Breast feeding and allergic diseases in infants—a prospective birth cohort study
Exclusive breast feeding seems to have a preventive effect on the early development of allergic disease—that is, asthma, atopic dermatitis, and suspected allergic rhinitis, up to 2 years of age.
Association between infant feeding patterns and diarrhoeal and respiratory illness: A cohort study in Chittagong, Bangladesh
The findings suggest that exclusive or predominant breastfeeding can reduce rates of morbidity significantly in this region of rural Bangladesh.
Duration of breast-feeding and the risk of childhood allergic diseases in a developing country.
In children of developing countries, prolonged breast-feeding reduces the risk of developing allergic diseases and eczema even in the presence of maternal allergy, where it might be a practical, effective preventive measure.
Modes of Infant Feeding and the Occurrence of Coughing/Wheezing in the First Year of Life
Any mode of feeding that includes formula or bottled breast milk seems to be a moderate risk for cough or wheezing episodes in the first 12 months of life.
Effects of breast feeding on infants with rotavirus diarrhea
Breast feeding can reduce rotavirus diarrhea in infants, but can not reduce dehydration, and different groups of feeding had no statistical significance.
