INTRODUCTION Many studies have incorporated cortisol measurements when studying infant development, but descriptions of normal development of basal cortisol levels in large study populations are scarce. The present study aimed to establish norm values for infant basal cortisol levels and to examine the development of intra-individual variability in the first year of life. METHODS More than 2500 cortisol samples were collected in 300 infants at three different ages. At each age four 1100h… CONTINUE READING
