Background: Type and volume of infant feeding determines infant growth, hematological parameters, and serum lipids. Methods: Study subjects were 103 infants, who were born vaginally at term with birthweight over 2200g. Milk feeding amount, type, and anthropometry was measured at one and six months. Hematological tests and serum lipid profile was assessed at one and six months. Thirty-four infants were breastfed and 36 were formula-fed at six months. Results: Breastfed infants in our study demonstrated similar growth patterns compared with partially breastfed or formula-fed infants, in spite of less milk intake. However, infants with higher breastmilk intake at six months tended to present lower hemoglobin values at six months. In contrast, higher formula intake at six months was related to lower serum total cholesterol values. Conclusions: Japanese breastfed infants were more likely to be anemic at six months, while formula-fed infants were likely to have low serum lipid values. Iron fortified infant foods may be useful to prevent anemia in breastfed infants. Fat quality of infant formulas should be improved to enhance lipid status of formula-fed infants.
