Maternal depressive symptoms and attained size among children in the first 2 years of life.
The researchers evaluated the relation of maternal depressive symptoms with attained size and whether it is stronger for young children in low-income families. They found that odds of short stature were significantly increased at 6 months in the total sample and among low/middle-income families for children whose mothers reported symptoms. Other measures of attained size were not associated with depressive symptoms.
