Table 5 Parameter Estimates of the Latent Growth Models of CEBQ subscale scores by WFLz/BMIz and WFAzb

From: Do infants fed directly from the breast have improved appetite regulation and slower growth during early childhood compared with infants fed from a bottle?

  Intercept, Coef. (Std. Err.) Slope, Coef. (Std. Err.)
SR, WFLz/BMIz -0.07 (0.05) -0.91 (0.54)
SR, WFAz -0.08 (0.06) -1.33 (2.22)*
FR, WFLz/BMIz 0.14 (0.08) 1.02 (0.74)
FR, WFAz 0.62 (0.07) 1.93 (0.85)*
EF, WFLz/BMIz 0.04 (0.08) -0.41 (0.81)
EF, WFAz -0.02 (0.08) 0.68 (0.83)
  1. * p ≤ 0.05
  2. a DIRECT BF was the reference group. Controlling for: Overall duration of human milk use, child gender, child race, maternal education, and income level
  3. b Controlling for: Group Membership [DIRECT BF, BTL-HM, BTL-FORM]
  4. BTL-HM = Bottle-fed Human Milk group. BTL-FORM = Bottle-fed Formula group. BMIz = body mass index z-score. WFLz = Weight-for-Length z-score. WFAz = Weight-for-Age z-score. SR = Satiety Responsiveness Subscale. FR = Food Responsiveness Subscale. EF = Enjoyment of Food Subscale. Coef = Coefficient. Std. Err. = Standard Error. The total sample was n = 99 for these analyses.
