Growth, pace and variations in physical aspects of preterm and term babies a longitudinal-comparative analysis
Author(s): Shruti Marwaha
The in-hand research study was designed contemporaneously with the developmental aspects and milestones* of child development in order to find out variations in the growth patterns, specifically in terms of Weight*, Length*/Height* of preterm and term babies. The research was conducted in Chandigarh and Mohali. The sample consisted of two groups; Preterm* and Term babies. The data related to the subjects was collected through the Doctors and Parents. The said parameters were recorded over the period of two years from birth. The data was minutely, carefully and authentically taken & assessed. It was found that although initially the preterm babies lagged in their length and weight measurements, but amazingly, it was witnessed that there was no variation in the later months where mainstreaming* was notified in the physical growth among Preterm and Term babies.
