These papers were updated as evidence became available. Breast-fed infants who are also given solid foods or milk from formula are at higher risk of HIV infection than those who are exclusively breast-fed, according to a study of mother-to-child transmission of HIV in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.1 Infants who receive such mixed feeding are more likely than those exclusively breast-fed to acquire HIV infection (hazard ratio, ).
