(Pediatrics. Published online May 17, 2010) -- Breast Feeding is linked to a lower incidence of fever following immunizations.  Breastfed babies demonstrate a different immune response than non-breastfed babies.  Of 460 infants recruited, outcome data were available for 450 (98%).  Fever was reported in 30 (25%) of exlusively breast-fed infants, in 48 (31%) of partially breast-fed infants, and in 94 (53%) of infants who were not breast-fed at all (P < .01).  Among infants who were exclusively breast-fed, the relative risk for fever was 0.46 (95% confidence interval [CI], 0.33 - 0.66), and it was 0.58 (95% [CI] 0.44 - 0.77) among partially breast-fed infants.
