Previous studies led to the recommendation to schedule planned elective cesarean deliveries at or after 39 weeks of gestation and not before 38 weeks. The question is whether this practice is appropriate in face of possible risks to the newborn should the pregnancy have to be ended by cesarean section ...

Within the first year of life, infants learn to segment words from fluent speech. Previous research has shown that infants at 0;7·5 can segment consonant-initial words, yet the ability to segment vowel-initial words does not emerge until the age of 1;1-1;4 (0;11 in some restricted cases). In five experiments, we ...

Prone sleeping is a major risk factor for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and preterm infants are at significantly increased risk. In term infants, prone sleeping is associated with reduced mean arterial pressure (MAP) and cerebral tissue oxygenation index (TOI). However, little is known about the effects of sleeping position ...

Researchers have long been interested in the emergence of transitive reasoning abilities (e.g., if A>B and B>C, then A>C). Preschool-aged children are found to make transitive inferences. Additionally, nonhuman animals demonstrate parallel abilities, pointing to evolutionary roots of transitive reasoning. The present research examines whether 16-month-old infants can make transitive ...

Autism as we know it, is caused iatrogenically and occurs reportedly one in 88 live birth [3]. Now national survey pegs autism prevalence one in 50 school-age children and the incidence is rising much fast in recent years. The author is hypothesizing idiopathic autism is caused by feeding of infant ...

This paper is a response to Giubilini and Minerva's defence of infanticide. I argue that any account of moral worth or moral rights that depends on the intrinsic properties of individuals alone is committed to agreeing with Giubilini and Minerva that birth cannot by itself make a moral difference to ...

When face processing studies find sex differences, male infants appear better at face recognition than female infants, whereas female adults appear better at face recognition than male adults. Both female infants and adults, however, discriminate emotional expressions better than males. To investigate if sex and age differences in facial scanning ...

Over the last decade, nursing staff and feeding therapists have promoted the upright and sidelying bottle feeding positions as 'optimal' for preterm infants. To verify such benefits, very low birth weight infants were randomized to being fed in the customary semi-reclined (control), upright, or side-lying position. The primary outcome was ...

In a pilot study, we found that the NIRS measurements were highly variable and dramatically decreased or disappeared sporadically while monitoring gastro-intestinal (GI) StO(2) on preterm neonates. We hypothesized that the light absorption characteristics of different neonatal and infant stool types may be interfering with NIRS GI measurements. Meconium, transitional, ...

Clin Microbiol Infect 2012; 18 (Suppl. 4): 21-26 ABSTRACT: The establishment of a balanced intestinal microbiota is essential for numerous aspects of human health, yet the microbial colonization of the gastrointestinal tract of infants is both complex and highly variable among individuals. In addition, the gastrointestinal tract microbiota is often ...

Episodes of streaked rectal bleeding are not uncommon in exclusively breast-fed infants less than 6 months of age. Although this rectal bleeding is thought to be associated with food protein-induced proctocolitis, the pathomechanism still remains unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the intestinal microbiota and secretory immunoglobulin ...

We present 3 cases of pre-term low-weight infants with suspected necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) (1 eventually recognized as a connatal CMV infection), microbiologically monitored using a molecular assay detecting bacterial and fungal DNA in blood. The detection of DNA from enteric pathogens in blood was interpreted as a sign of ongoing ...

The incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and mortality rate associated with this disease are not decreasing despite more than three decades of intensive research investigation and advances in neonatal intensive care. Although the etiology of NEC is not clearly elucidated, the most accepted hypothesis at present is that enteral feeding ...

Previous research has shown indirectly that infants may use two different mechanisms-an object tracking system and an analog magnitude mechanism-to represent small (<4) and large (⩾4) numbers of objects, respectively. The current study directly tested this hypothesis in an ordinal choice task by presenting 10- to 12-month-olds with a choice ...

The infant intestinal microbiota is shaped by genetics and environment, including the route of delivery and early dietary intake. Data from germ-free rodents and piglets support a critical role for the microbiota in regulating gastrointestinal and immune development. Human milk oligosaccharides (HMO) both directly and indirectly influence intestinal development by ...

Newborn intestinal obstructions are a common reason for admission to neonatal ICUs. The incidence is estimated to be approximately 1 in 2000 live births. There are 4 cardinal signs of intestinal obstruction in newborns: (1) maternal polyhydramnios, (2) bilious emesis, (3) failure to pass meconium in the first day of ...

We present a case of a 7-week-old infant who presented with nonspecific respiratory symptoms that quickly progressed to sudden cardiac arrest as a consequence of late-onset diaphragmatic hernia and intestinal strangulation. Unless discovered as an incidental finding, late-onset diaphragmatic hernia should be considered a surgical emergency.

Transmesenteric hernias are internal hernias caused by a congenital defect in the mesentery. They are rare causes of intestinal obstruction, but most commonly affect the small bowel. We report an unexpected death of an infant with a bowel obstruction caused by a congenital mesenteric defect, which was undiagnosed despite visits ...
