Transitional Changes of Body Water after Birth Although the mechanism is unknown, there is a universal contraction of ECW in infants soon after birth associated with a weight loss of 7% to 15% of body weight by the end of the first week. The magnitude of contraction is inversely proportional to maturity. Term infants have an average of 5% to 7% weight loss during the first week (reflecting contraction of ECW),23 but very low birth weight (VLBW)24 and extremely low birth weight (ELBW)25 infants may lose 10% to 15% of body weight, respectively, during that same time frame (Fig.

18 A study by Lapillonne et al19 using DEXA analysis also found a reduced fat content in SGA near-term and term infants, although the difference did not reach statistical significance because of the small sample size. No conclusions about the effect of altered body composition of SGA neonates on the risk for neonatal complications or long-term outcome can be drawn from body fluid compartment measurements because studies including body composition measurements are usually small, and no clinical outcomes are reported.
