Correction

After publication of this article [1] it was brought to our attention that there were errors in the text under the heading ‘Data cleaning’, and in Table 3. The corrected text and updated Table 3 are given in this erratum.

Table 3 Period-1 (the 3/6 week–12 week) and period-2 (12–24 weeks) mean weight velocity (WVZ) and length velocity (LVZ) by infant feedinga

“Anthropometric measurement values and Z-scores were flagged for verification if any of the following criteria were met: WAZ < −6 or >5, WLZ < −5 or >5, LAZ < −6 or >6, WLZ > 3 and LAZ < −3; 2) extreme changes in LAZ and WLZ (greater than 2.5 or 3) between consecutive visits; 3) BMI-for-age Z-score ≥ 6. All the flagged anthropometric observations were assessed and values treated as missing if no plausible explanation was determined.”
