Paternal and maternal testosterone in parents of NICU infants transitioning home.
This study examined testosterone levels for parents of very low-birth-weight infants, including links between salivary testosterone and infant factors (such as breast-feeding), psychosocial stress, and changes over time. Using multilevel modeling approaches, the researchers reported significant associations between paternal testosterone by time and psychosocial adjustment and between both paternal and maternal testosterone and infant feeding mode.
