The aim of the study was to determine the effect of a maternal docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) supplementation during lactation, compared with a placebo, on the neonatal growth profile of breastfed very preterm infants.
Preterm infants’ growth profile, growth velocity from birth to 36 weeks’ postmenstrual age (PMA), and growth at 36 weeks’ PMA were pre-specified secondary outcomes of a randomized placebo-controlled trial conducted in 16 Canadian neonatal intensive care units (2015–2018).
Lactating mothers who delivered before 29 weeks’ gestation were given 1.2 g of DHA daily or a placebo within 72 h of delivery and up to 36 weeks’ PMA. Analyses were performed using a linear regression model with generalized estimating equations.
