  Bacteria groups Mean differences (95% CI) p value
Total breastfeeding: Yes versus No Lactobacilli - Enterococci 5.236 (1.044 - 9.428) 0.015

Sibling number Bifidobacterium
Enterobacteriaceae

  1. Linear mixed model analysis adjusted with confounding factors (Location, mode of delivery, weaning age, sibling number, total breastfeeding up to 6 month, eczema and prenatal antibiotics). Only bacteria groups with statistically significant differences are listed.
