Nutrition of the Newborn

  • Peter Hahn

Abstract

The fetus is not a parasite. It consumes what it is given. It can be underfed or overnourished. Fetal nutrition is directly dependent on maternal nutrition. Frequently, a few more grams of protein and calories a day may prevent the delivery of premature or small-for-date infants.(32)
