  1. aAdjusted for birth weight, mother’s pre-pregnancy height and weight, and annual household income.
  2. bSamples with scores of +1 and +2 were combined due to the extremely small size of sample with score +1.
  3. cStandardized partial regression coefficient.
  4. dAssociations between the components of CS-ICFI at Visit 3 and mean LAZ, WAZ and WLZ at Visit 3 were tested using a linear regression model.
