Abstract

Objective:

This prospective longitudinal study of 73 VP/VLBW and 105 FT infants utilized a standard interview of mothers to assess regulatory problems among the infants at term, 3, 6, and 18 months of age.

Results:

VP/VLBW children are at slightly increased risk for RPs at term and in the second year of life. Clinicians should be aware that RPs that persist across the first 6 months point to increased risk of continuing RPs into toddlerhood in both VP/VLBW and FT infants.
