We examined the influence of multi-nutrient fortification of mother's milk (MM + MNF) compared to supplementation with calcium and phosphorus (MM + CaGP) alone in hospital (in a randomized trial), and of breastfeeding (post-MM) compared to formula feeding (post-FF ) after hospital discharge with a descriptive analysis of growth and body composition to 1 y corrected age in preterm infants. Anthropometry, nutrient intakes and whole body bone mineral content, lean and fat mass were determined at… CONTINUE READING
