Prolonged Bottle Feeding Boosts Kids' Obesity Risk: Study
Date:5/5/2011

The American Academy of Pediatrics has a similar recommendation, cautioning that "the bottle [should] be given up entirely at around age one and almost certainly by eighteen months."

Other research has suggested that prolonged bottle use may contribute to iron deficiency, according to background information with the study.

For the study, the researchers accounted for other factors that could influence obesity in 5-year-olds, including having an obese mother, socioeconomic status, whether kids were breast-fed as infants, and the timing of the introduction of solid foods.

Between 4 and 6 months of age, babies should begin eating solid foods, which will gradually become the child's main source of nourishment, Samuels said.
