Field, Tiffany M.; Schanberg, Saul; Davalos, Marisabel; Malphurs, Julie
Early Child Development and Care, v132 p57-63 May 1997
Compared mothers' and one-month-olds' behaviors during 20-minute bottlefeeding with standard or breastlike nipple. Found that mothers' behaviors did not differ, but infants on breastlike nipples spent less time asleep, more time awake and active and less time fussing and crying than infants on standard nipples; they also exhibited changes in vagal tone similar to those of breastfeeding infants.
