Breastfeeding and Infant Feeding Practices
The Infant Feeding Practices Study II (IFPS II), conducted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2005–2007, is a longitudinal study that followed about 2,000 mother-infant pairs from the third trimester of pregnancy throughout the first year of life to study a variety of infant feeding practices.
In 2012, the FDA and CDC conducted the Year Six Follow-Up (Y6FU) study among mothers and children who participated in the IFPS II to characterize the health, development and dietary patterns of these children at 6 years of age.
