Abstract

Thirty premature neonates (mean gestational age 31.8 +/- 3.90 weeks; mean birth weight 1569 +/- 236 g) were divided into three groups receiving breast milk, Robolact and Pre-Aptamil formula feeding. The infants with and without neonatal idiopathic respiratory distress syndrome (IRDS) were separately evaluated. No effect of the type of feeding and of a previously experienced IRDS on the blood T3-, T4-, and THS-levels could be demonstrated at the age of 6 weeks.
