In brief: Babies' growth

Yes, babies growth may be "stunted" if they do no not receive adequate milk, (breast or formula).
At first only weight is affected, but depending on duration length and brain growth and development could be affected. If unsure about your baby have your doctor check weights weekly or monthly depending on age.
