I wonder what about the cow's milk formula makes babies drink more?
""All formulas are not alike," said Dr. Julie Mennell, a developmental psychobiologist at Monell Chemical Senses Center. "These two formulas have the same amount of calories, but differ considerably in terms of how they influence infant growth."
When the data were compared to national norms for breast-fed infants, the rate of weight gain of protein hydrolysate infants was comparable to the breast milk standards; in contrast, infants fed cow's milk formula gained weight at a greater rate than the same breast milk standards.
