Abstract

Mean intakes of human milk provide sufficient energy and protein to meet mean requirements during the first 6 months of infancy. Since infant growth potential drives milk production, the distribution of intakes likely matches the distribution of energy and protein requirements. This longitudinal study describes the adequacy of milk intake during exclusive breastfeeding.
