Low birthweight is when a baby is born weighing less than 5 pounds, 8 ounces. Some low-birthweight babies are healthy, but others have serious health problems that need treatment. Premature birth (before 37 weeks of pregnancy) and fetal growth restriction are the most common causes of low birthweight.

Objectives To examine the prevalence and pattern of specific areas of learning disability (LD) in neurologically normal children with extremely low birth weight (ELBW) (≤ g) who have broadly average intelligence compared with full-term children with normal birth weight of comparable sociodemographic background, and to explore concurrent cognitive correlates of the specific by: Having a low birth weight infant sometimes requires additional hospital care and special care at home.
Before being discharged from the hospital the pediatrician will often give a care sheet covering the basic needs of an infant, but detailed care instructions for a low birth weight infant are not necessarily included.
For a pregnant mom, catching a common illness like a cold or the flu can raise concerns about harm to the baby. But these everyday illnesses don't typically threaten a developing infant.
