Abstract

BACKGROUND: Non-Hispanic black (NHB) infants are twice as likely as non-Hispanic white infants to experience rapid weight gain in the first 6 months, yet few trials have targeted this population. The current study tests the efficacy of "Mothers & Others," a home-based intervention for NHB women and their study partners versus an attention-control, on infant size and growth between birth and 15 months.
