OBJECTIVES To characterize an early trait in the BMI-for-age curve, the infant BMI peak. METHODS BMI-for-age curves were produced for 747 non-Hispanic, white Fels Longitudinal Study participants, from which individual age (AgePeak ) and BMI (BMIPeak ) at maximum infant BMI were estimated. Multivariable general linear regression was used to examine the effects of sex and birth year cohort (1929-1950, 1951-1970, and 1971-2010) on AgePeak and BMIPeak , with associations between BMIPeak and… CONTINUE READING
