I did not know this, but it makes so much sense.
We forget how insidious LBW and prematurity is for the development of all organs and capacities, particularly the immune and hormonal systems.

Thanks so much for the links. My 6 year old son was full term but weighed only 5 lb. 8 oz. at birth due to complications from my pre-eclampsia.
Have a good weekend,
marie :)
