Breastfed babies 'are more cranky and cry more'
Dr Ken Ong who led the trial admitted that bottle fed babies were more settled then breast fed, though bottled fed babies put on weight faster. His explanation for this behaviour was the fact that humans are content when fed, but our natural instinct sometimes may not be in our best interest even at that age.
Over 300 mums were asked to comment on the temperament of their own baby and to state whether they were using breast or bottle.
Overall, 137 of the infants were exclusively breastfed, 88 were exclusively bottle-fed, and 91 were fed with a mixture of formula and breast milk. Their findings were that breastfed babies were deemed to have "more challenging temperaments" and tended to cry more.
