Over/underdilution of formula Feeds continue from 150ml/kg to 600- day (underdilution-kcal dense formula->XS protein and solute-> 800ml per day. inc. risk dehydration & metabolic acidosis and hypernatremia (high Na and solute load) 2. Sterile water for milk formula (boil water 2 min-> pathogen free) 3. Microwaving formula (possible hot spots that can cause severe burns in infants) 4. Nursing Bottle Syndrome (Avoid nocturnal and long term use of bottles containing fluids other than water. Do not dip pacifiers or nipples in sugar or honey ->leads to severe dental caries) 5. Inappropriate milk substitues a. goat’s milk- df in folic acid, vit B6 and 12; higher in protein (3.6g/100ml) vs human milk (1g/100ml) and formula (1.4g/100ml)->risk of dehydration and higher renal solute load; Low Ca-P->risk of hyperphosphatemic tetany (painful and prolonged contraction) in small immature infants. b. Plant-based beverages (soy, rice beverages)- low kcal density(<80% of formulas); imbalanced nutrient profiles- >failure to thrive; insufficient vit.D (rickets, hypocalcemia); several (but not all) products bare label statements that the product is not a substitute for infant formula; dec bioavailability of some minerals due to phosphate compounds, particularly phytic acid (phytate, hexaphosphoinositol);case studies of infant malnutrition resulting from prolonged feeding of SB/RB as sole source of nutrition) c. Both a and b Mn content-> risk of neurotoxicity (infants uniquely sensitive); 34-36beverages analyzed exceed the range derived from the UL for 1-3 yr olds (in μg Mn/100kcal); overexposure is associated with long-term effects on learning ability until after 1 yr.
