Abstract

The main goal of this study is to compare the growth and physical development of exclusive breastfed infants during 6 months of a cohort of infants of a health centre with the reference population of Aragon obtained of Longitudinal Study of Growth and development of Andreas Prader Foundation. The prevalence of breastfeeding in this population is less than 30%. The authors want to know if the growth and development of exclusive breastfeeding during 6 months is worse than the reference population. So that it may be necessary to introduce non maternal food before 6 months.
