A 2-minute delay in cutting the umbilical cord leads to a better development of newborns (12/20/2014)

A study conducted by University of Granada scientists and from the San Cecilio Clinical Hospital has demonstrated that delaying the cutting of the umbilical cord in newborns by two minutes leads to a better development of the baby during the first days of life. ...> Full Article


Study finds low weight gain in pregnant women reduces male fetal survival (12/19/2014)

Study finds low weight gain in pregnant women reduces male fetal survivalThe amount of weight a woman gains during pregnancy can be vitally important -- especially if she's carrying a boy -- according to a study by the University of Georgia released today in PLOS ONE. Research by associate professor Kristen Navara found that male fetuses are more likely to die if their mothers don't gain enough weight during pregnancy. For women who gained less than 20 pounds, the female-to-male birth rate ratio shifted to about 52-to-48 in favor of female babies. ...> Full Article


Prenatal exposure to common household chemicals linked with substantial drop in child IQ (12/18/2014)

Children exposed during pregnancy to elevated levels of two common chemicals found in the home -- di-n-butyl phthalate and di-isobutyl phthalate -- had an IQ score, on average, more than six points lower than children exposed at lower levels, according to researchers at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health. The study is the first to report a link between prenatal exposure to phthalates and IQ in school-age children. Results appear in the journal PLOS ONE. ...> Full Article


Are you helping your toddler's aggressive behavior? (12/17/2014)

Physical aggression in toddlers has been thought to be associated with the frustration caused by language problems, but a recent study by researchers at the University of Montreal shows that this isn't the case. The researchers did find, however, that parental behaviors may influence the development of an association between the two problems during early childhood. ...> Full Article

Higher birth weight indicates better performance in school (12/15/2014)

It's no secret that low-birth-weight babies face significantly greater risks for certain health problems early on, such as respiratory distress or infection. Now, a new study from researchers at the University of Florida and Northwestern University shows that lower weights at birth also have an adverse effect on children's performance in school, which is likely due to the early health struggles small babies often face. ...> Full Article


Are the benefits of breast milk stimulant worth the risk? (12/14/2014)

While some specialists encourage the off-label use of domperidone to stimulate breast milk production, some studies have suggested it may be related to negative side effects, including irregular heartbeat and sudden cardiac death. In a new article out today, researchers concluded that although domperidone can increase breast milk production, and there is no known risk to the babies who drink the milk, risks to women are still worrying. ...> Full Article

Why does physical activity during childhood matter? (12/12/2014)

Most scientific research on the topic of physical inactivity has focused on the consequences of physical inactivity for physical health, with significant attention to obesity and medical conditions such as diabetes. 'The Relation of Childhood Physical Activity to Brain Health, Cognition, and Scholastic Achievement' (Charles Hillman and colleagues, University of Illinois; Society for Research in Child Development), provides compelling new data on the consequences of physical inactivity for neural function, cognitive task performance, and academic achievement. ...> Full Article


Heavier newborns show academic edge in school (12/11/2014)

Birth weight makes a difference to a child's future academic performance, according to new Northwestern University research that found heavier newborns do better in elementary and middle school than infants with lower birth weights. Led by a multidisciplinary team of Northwestern researchers, the study raises an intriguing question: Does a fetus benefit from a longer stay in the mother's womb? ...> Full Article
