We are grateful for Menon et al’s editorial in response1 to our recent article.2 They set out several pertinent points and issue a call to action for future research.
Menon et al question whether ‘catch-up’ growth of infants with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) contributed substantially to the overall change in weight SD Score (∆SDS) between birth and 36 weeks corrected gestational age (CGA). Further analysis of our data sheds some light on this proposition. Infants with IUGR (defined as a birth weight of at least 1.33 SD below the 1990 British Growth Reference mean) grew slightly more than their non-IUGR counterparts (table 1).
