Babies who were bottle-fed had at least a twofold increased risk of developing a stomach obstruction called hypertrophic pyloric stenosis compared with breast-fed babies, a study in the journal JAMA Pediatrics showed. Researchers also found that risk increased as maternal age increased, with babies whose mothers were older than 35 being five to six times more likely to develop pyloric stenosis.
