  • THE EARLY CARE AND FEEDING OF ANOREXICS CHILD PSYCHIATRY & HUMAN DEVELOPMENT Steiner, H., Smith, C., ROSENKRANZ, R. T., Litt, I. 1991; 21 (3): 163-167

    Abstract:

    Comparing mothers' reports of early feeding practices in 18 mothers of anorexics and 25 mothers of normal children by means of a questionnaire, we found that the mothers of anorexics introduced solids earlier and used Schedule rather than Demand feedings more frequently. The mothers of anorexics did not treat patients and control siblings differentially. Our study suggests that differences in early feeding and in infant temperament may be operative in the pathogenesis of anorexia nervosa.
