Solid foods and infant growth
HELP US GIVE BABIES A SOLID START ON SOLIDS! We are interested in learning how consuming different types of solid foods during early complementary feeding affects growth, neurodevelopment, sleep, and the bacteria in the gut. The findings from this study may help to inform future dietary guidelines for infants.
Your baby may be eligible if they are:
- Exclusively breastfed
- Younger than six months of age
- Full term (> 37-weeks’ gestation)
- Have not yet been introduced to solid foods
This is a 7-month long study, with visits occurring once every month.
The first visit, 9-month visit, and last visit will be conducted at Children's Hospital Colorado and the other 4 visits will be contactless home visits.
Compensation will be provided!
Main Procedures Involved: - Collection of stool, urine, breastmilk, and blood - Monthly weight, length, and head circumference measurements - Monthly 3-day diet record - Sleep watch data - Neurodevelopment assessment
Duration of Participation: 7 months
Full-term, generally healthy and exclusively breastfed babies
