Fluoride Intake of Infants from Formula

Objective: This study aimed to assess fluoride intake in infants from formula reconstituted with water, with fluorosis risk in mind. Study Design: Data on water source, formula brand/type, volume of formula consumption and infant weight were collected for infants at two-, four-, six-, nine- and twelve-month pediatrician well child visits. Identified formula brands and water types were reconstituted and analyzed for fluoride concentration. Patient body mass and volume consumed/day were used to estimate fluoride intake from reconstituted formula.
