To provide more comprehensive follow-up care for low birthweight infants, it is important for nurses to know what concerns mothers of these low birthweight infants commonly experience and how concerns change over time. This descriptive, longitudinal study followed 65 mothers of low birthweight infants from birth until the infant was 6 months adjusted gestational age. Most concerns were raised the week following birth (109) and after infant discharge (72), although from 40 weeks (62) to 6 months (40), the number of concerns raised were fairly consistent. The largest category of concerns was health related (253).
