A newly developed liquid ready-to-use cow's milk based formula (BD) was used as the sole nutrient in 314 healthy term infants below the age of 28 weeks--except for supplementary feeding introduced at an average age of 142 days. The incidence of dyspeptic problems (constipation, diarrhea, vomiting), the parents' and visiting nurses' comments on the product, and the causes of "BD failure" (termination of BD feeding because of suspected cow's milk allergy, dyspepsia, etc.) were recorded as were rates of weight gain and linear growth. It is concluded that BD is a valuable alternative to existing powdered milk formulas and that the growth of the infants compared satisfactorily with published reference values.
