Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Vitamin A and E content of the milk of mothers of term and pre-term infants has been determined for at least four weeks post delivery. In all mothers both vitamin A and E levels decreased and showed significant correlations with week of lactation. In full term mothers levels of both vitamins in milk were higher than in mothers giving birth pre-term, whereas the decrease in concentration was slower in mothers of pre-term infants. Calculations suggest that intake per kg of both vitamins was lower in pre-term infants.
