Table 3 Greater odds for mothers having fed as the first soothing strategy in response to infant fussiness during periods of the day when infants fussed less frequently. Models show infant fussiness by infant age and infant fussiness by time of day interactions on Fed First, compared to Not Fed First

From: Ecological momentary assessment of using food to soothe during infancy in the INSIGHT trial
