Serum insulin and blood glucose levels were measured in newborns aged four to eight hours and those aged seven days who were either breast fed or formula fed. With both types of feeding, the maximum serum insulin levels occurred 60 minutes postprandially in four- to eight-hour-old infants and 30 minutes postprandially in seven-day-old babies.
