There are further epidemiological associations reported between the type of early feeding, breast or formula milk, and Type I diabetes mellitus, autoimmune disease and atopic disease. None of the latter associations has been confirmed. However, it is reasonable to suppose that, since adult size is determined, often to a large extent, by nutrition in early life, so also may be other aspects of metabolism. It is likely that intra-uterine nutrition is of paramount importance and that early infant feeding is of secondary importance in this respect.

Bottled feeds are far more likely to become contaminated by local pathogens, especially where hygiene is poor and the ambient temperature and humidity are high, which applies to much of the ‘developing’ world. Thus, they carry infection and do nothing to combat it. They are also expensive - costing far more than feeding the mother sufficient to permit normal lactation and her own health. Finally, increasing numbers of formula-fed infants are becoming milk-intolerant. The reasons are not clear. Hypersensitivity to bovine protein, probably R-lactoglobulin, appears to play the major role.

Also, iron bioavailability from such porridges is very low. Another major problem is that contaminated weaning foods cause infection, which increases infants’ dietary requirements but often reduces their appetite and therefore, intake. Particularly in the developed world, weaning foods are sometimes pushed to the extent that the infant is overfed and becomes overweight. A weak positive association exists between obesity at a year and adult obesity; in one of many studies, twice as many fat infants as non-fat infants became fat adults (35).
