Question 1
Do you agree with the proposed change? If no, please provide rationale and relevant citations: 
There are no specific objections, rather there is a degree of support proposed changes however suggest that consideration be given to: 1. Providing/including reference to the respective sections and page numbers where further specific detail can be found in the broader document for each summary statement. This would make the document easier to navigate and access important detail more readily by the end user whilst permitting the summary to remain brief and overarching in nature. 2. Any changes to the summary statements, should prompt a review and an aligned update of the associated sections in the body of the document. 3. ASCIA plan to review their Infant Feeding Guidelines this year, and are awaiting the release of relevant papers this year before completing this work. It is suggested that the NHMRC 2012 Infant Feeding Guidelines are reviewed and updated in line with the ASCIA update and also include consideration of the key papers anticipated for release in 2015. http://www.allergy.org.au/health-professionals/papers/ascia-infant-feeding-advice
