A study was made of three groups of babies, one breast fed, one having Karitane Milk Food, the third homogenised milk. Blood sodium and urea were measured in the neonatal period. The urea levels were significantly higher in babies having homogenised milk compared with those fed Karitane or breast milk. Haemoglobin was measured in the neonatal period, and at 3, 6, 10 1/2 and 18 months. At six months, haemoglobin levels were significantly higher in Karitane milk fed than in homogenised milk fed babies. Serum cholesterol and triglyceride were measured in cord blood, and at 6 and 18 months of age. Serum triglyceride levels in babies on Karitane Milk Food were significantly higher than those on homogenised milk. Increments in weight, height and head circumference were compared. Karitane milk fed babies gained significantly more weight than breast fed between three and six months of age.
