Holistic approach for healthy growth of infants is considered in this study by measuring weight as an important variable.
There were significant increase in the average gain in monthly weight throughout infancy (P<0.01) and preponement of age at which weaning started (P<0.001) in infants born to mothers who registered themselves early during same gestation for antenatal care programme, the same infants being followed in an under-five clinic till one year of age.
Though there was hardly any difference in average birth weights of infants of the study and control groups (P>0.05), antenatal care programme was definitely helpful in promoting their babies for early registration for an under-five clinic (P<0.001).
