Abstract: This analytic-descriptive study compares the growth curve of breastfed babies and those babies who receive formula at 0 to 12 months of age. In order to do the study, the weights of 95% of newborn babies were considered at birth. The data were collected through a questionnaire whose validity was tested by Cronbach's alpha method. The data was analyzed using SPSS software (version 22) and appropriate statistical tests. Data analysis was performed on the basis of statistical inference and appropriate statistical techniques to confirm or reject the hypothesis.
