Babies who are pre-term, underweight or shorter than average have been found to be up to three times more likely to be hospitalized for an infection than the children who had the 'ordinary' full term births. The worrying point about this particular part of the research is that every single week early, and every small increment of birth weight and length has an impact on the possibility of your child having an infection that is severe enough to have them admitted to hospital. The researchers are finding that it's not just the very premature or pre-term babies that are effected but even the ones that arrive one or two weeks before term and these effects continue well into adolescence and possibly beyond.. so this is a podcast that may even effect you!
