Bottle feeding before bed time may increase risk of childhood asthma

Risk may be raised by 50 percent

Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) have found that children with a family history of asthma or allergies may face significantly higher risk of persistent wheezing and asthma later in childhood when bottle fed in the bed or crib before sleep time.

"For infants in a high-risk group, we found that when and how they are fed influence the onset of wheezing and asthma," said Juan Celedon, M.D., DrPH, of BWH. "There is a significant relationship between the number of times children are bottle fed in the crib or bed prior to sleep time and the occurrence of wheezing during their first five years."

Nearly one in thirteen children in America has asthma. The National Institutes of Health reports that the prevalence of asthma around the world has doubled in the last 15 years, increasing 160 percent among pre-school age children. Asthma is the third leading-cause of hospitalization among children under age 15 and accounts for more than 10 million missed school days annually.

Researchers found that bottle feeding in the bed or crib before sleep time during the first year of life was a risk factor for asthma and recurrent wheezing at five years of age. It also appeared to be a risk factor for wheezing between the ages of one to five years.

Children whose parents reported bottle feeding in the bed or crib before sleep time on three occasions in the first year of life had a 50 percent higher risk of wheezing by age five compared to children who were not bottle fed before sleep time in the bed or crib
