Neonatal Nutrition and Maternal Factors

Nutrition is vital, especially in the first couple weeks of life, as nutrition leads to weight gain. Without proper weight gain, newborns are at risk for delays in mental development.  

Investigators are examining the effects nutritional factors related to infant growth and development, especially related to human milk. They are also studying the effects early maternal conditions and maternal nutrition have on infant growth and development.
