Development of night time temperature rhythms over the first six months of life.
Continuous recordings of night time rectal temperature were made at regular intervals over the first six months of life in 49 babies. In the first two weeks of life rectal temperature changed littleExpand

Factors affecting the development of night time temperature rhythms.
The rectal temperature of 26 infants between 6 and 16 weeks old was monitored continuously for one night each week. Rectal temperature always decreased with sleep but the minimum temperature attainedExpand

Higher rectal temperatures in co-sleeping infants.
The effect on deep body temperature of infants co-sleeping (with either or both parents) is investigated in this case control study. Overnight continuous recordings of rectal temperature were madeExpand

Early physiological development of infants with intrauterine growth retardation
Objectives: To assess the patterns of early postnatal physiological adaptation and maturation in intrauterine growth retarded (IUGR) infants by measuring changes in sleeping deep body temperature,Expand

Sleeping body temperatures in 3-4 month old infants.
Rectal, skin, and ambient temperatures were continuously recorded overnight from 3-4 month old normal infants in their home cots under conditions of room temperature and wrapping chosen freely byExpand

Interactions between infant care practices and physiological development in Asian infants.
Asian infants are less likely to suffer cot death despite apparently higher prevalence of some risk factors. This paper compares the development of night time body temperature patterns in a smallExpand

Factors influencing the body temperature of 3-4 month old infants at home during the day.
Continuous recordings of rectal temperature were made from 40 normal infants, aged 3-4 months, at home during two days of normal activities. We found that the rectal temperature of a normal, healthyExpand

Effect of parental smoking on cotinine levels in newborns
Background: Smoking is a major risk factor for cot death. Many infants smoke passively as a result of parental smoking. This paper reports on infants exposed to a smoking environment and how theyExpand

Prone sleeping infants have a reduced ability to lose heat.
The heat loss coefficients of a group of infants have been calculated and compared to see if there is a difference in the ability to lose heat between prone and non-prone sleeping infants. For aExpand

Factors affecting rectal temperature in infancy.
The recordings of 1197 overnight rectal temperatures from infants of up to 24 weeks of age have been analysed with respect to 12 variables, including a number of risk factors for sudden infant deathExpand
