2. Comments for Breast fed:
I am the youngest of eight children. My mom was in pretty poor health by the time I was conceived / born.
Did fine, Mother went out of town for 10 days, returned and try to resume breast feeding but it was unsuccessful at that point. But otherwise the breastfeeding was fine.
Surely that's not a cause for Rombergs?! Its good for you!
Mother went back to work and bottle fed breast milk to 1 year or so.
Baby led weaning at 18 months.
Was also formula fed for the first year, as I worked and had to supplement.
Rombergs can start at any age so I cannot believe breast feeding has anything to do with triggering Rombergs. Billions of babies are breast fed but do not get Rombergs. In fact breast milk is far more nutritious & has many immunisation qualities which would fight infection & diseases. I would think babies who were not breast fed would be more prone to Rombergs.
Number responding = 7 / percent responding = 5% of total respondents (143).
