A baby’s mother is most likely, if not the most likely person to kill her newborn.
According to a new study, the more time a baby spends with a parent, the higher the risk of its death.
The study of 3,000 infants found that mothers were about three times more likely to kill their babies if they were exposed to their newborns in the first year of life than mothers were when the babies were born at home.
The study also found that the mother was twice as likely to die of complications from an underlying medical condition than the mother’s peers, according to a news release from the study’s lead author, David G. Kroll.
“It’s really concerning to think that the mom is not taking care of the infant at all,” said Kroll, the director of the Center for Child and Adolescent Health at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
“It’s not an ideal situation.”
The study was published in the American Journal of Public Health and is one of several that have shown that maternal care is linked to the development of fetal brain abnormalities.
The results of the study also highlight how the role of mothers in the development and health of their infants can be critical.
While many mothers are aware of the importance of having their babies with a close-knit family and being in close contact with their child, there is still a lack of understanding about how these close-cousin relationships affect fetal brain development, Kroll said.
The current study also highlighted how mothers can be influenced by the amount of time they spend with their newborn.
Researchers found that babies who spent more than 30 minutes with their mother in the womb had a more abnormal development in their developing brain.
“There’s a lot of studies that show that mothers who spend more time with their infants have less cognitive development,” Kroll told Live Science.
“The amount of exposure to a parent increases the risk that a child will have a developmental delay.”
The new study also showed that a mother’s exposure to her newborn can influence how the child reacts to their mother’s actions.
“The mom has to be in the moment and she’s responsible for the baby’s behavior,” Krol said.
“And if the mom gets upset, the baby reacts negatively.
And if the mother is not caring for the child and the baby is not getting enough time with her, it’s likely the baby will be at risk.”
For the study, researchers analyzed data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) in 2003, 2009 and 2011.
They looked at more than 9,000 children and their mothers and compared that to information on the babies’ behavioral and mental health.
In addition, researchers looked at data from three other studies, including a study in Sweden and a study from the United Kingdom.
The researchers did not control for socioeconomic status or other factors that might influence behavior, which could affect the findings.
The findings showed that mothers with more time spent with their babies had a 2.4 percent higher risk of having a child who died in the next six months compared to mothers who spent less time with the babies.
Mothers who spent over 40 minutes with the newborn had a 4.8 percent higher chance of having the baby who died.
The research also showed an association between maternal age and how much time a child spent with a mother.
A woman who was 45 or older had a 6.4-percent higher chance than a woman who had under 40 years of age.
A baby who was born in the second or third trimester of pregnancy had a 16.7-percent lower risk of death than a baby who came in the third tranche.
“This finding is consistent with previous research showing that mothers are exposed to a greater number of risks in the early years of their pregnancy, and that this is linked with the risk for fetal brain disorder,” Kravitz said.
While there are many factors that can contribute to a baby’s health, Kravatz said there are several factors that could be causing the brain to develop abnormally.
For example, there are certain things that mothers can do to reduce the risk.
“These maternal behaviors may be associated with the fetus being at a higher risk for developing fetal brain abnormality,” he said.
