Normal throat microflora have an important role of antagonistic activity against pathogenic bacteria. We studied members of throat microflora of 30 exclusively breastfed, 15 mixed-fed and 15 exclusively formula-fed infants at the age of 1 month.

All Infants harboured alpha haemolytic Streptococcus. The incidence of gamma Streptococcus and coagulase negative Staphylococcus's Isolation from breastfed infants was higher. We also found that coagulme negative Staphylococcus is one of three predominant bacterial species in breastfed infants.
