METHODS: Parents of 34 infants with infant colic and 67 control dyads were included. Parental feelings were assessed using validated questionnaires. RESULTS: Fathers as well as mothers of infants with infant colic showed significantly higher mean scores compared with controls on stress (20...

AIM: To compare Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL) of pediatric patients with newly collected HRQOL data of the general Dutch population, explore responses to individual items and investigate variables associated with HRQOL. METHODS: Children (8-12y) and adolescents (13-17y) from the general population (N=966) and from a pediatric population (N=1209), completed the Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PedsQLTM ) online via the KLIK Patient Reported Outcome Measures portal...

There is increasing evidence that adult patients diagnosed with acute COVID-19 suffer from Long COVID initially described in Italy. A recent large cohort of 1733 patients from Wuhan found persistent symptoms in 76% of patients 6 months after initial diagnosis. To date, data on Long Covid in children are scarce, with the exception of an earlier description of five children with Long Covid in Sweden.

I would like to thank Drs López, Grasa, Calvo and López-Hortelano for their informative letter (1) where they comment on my recent paper about five children with suggested long covid (2), but also draw our attention to their Spanish-language paper on Telemedicine follow-ups for COVID-19 (3). Of note their letter in Acta Paediatrica (1) confirms that long covid often occurs in pre-adolescent and adolescent children.

Infants experience multiple stressors in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), which may have adverse effects on brain development. Non-invasive interventions that reduce stress may improve neurodevelopmental functioning.1 This pilot study assessed whether live music therapy, performed by a certified neonatal music therapist,2 had beneficial effects on neurodevelopment.

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is the leading cause of vision loss in children. A well-known risk factor for the development of ROP is duration of oxygen supplementation. Other postnatal factors have also been associated with ROP risk, including poor post-natal weight gain. The weight, insulin-like growth factor, neonatal retinopathy of prematurity (WINROP) algorithm predicts severe ROP based on postnatal weight gain and has been validated in several studies,1,2 including a high sensitivity for prediction of severe ROP in our local NICU populations...

AIM: This study examined the pattern of sedentary behaviour during the week and on weekends, and associations with health outcomes among children aged 5-7 years in Sweden. METHODS: This cross-sectional study used data from 342 children, many of whom had at least one parent born outside the Nordic region. Physical activity and sedentary time were measured by accelerometry. A sedentary bout was defined as 1-4 and 5-9 minutes. Diet, time in front of television or computer screen, sleep and physical activity behaviour were measured via parental reports, and anthropometric data by research staff...

AIM: This 8-week intervention examined the effect of two different types of classroom-based physical activity on math performance in elementary school children. METHODS: Students in 4th and 5th grade (N = 560; 32 classes, 9-11 years old) from six schools were assigned to integrated physical activity (Move for Thought [M4T], n = 221), activity break (AB; n = 134), and a control group (n = 205; usual instruction) for eight weeks. Students completed a standardized math test before and after the intervention...

The Italian COVID-19 lockdown, from 11 March to 16 May 2020, led to an economic crisis, social uncertainty and stress. It also limited access to health services, including pregnancy follow-up visits, with a possible rise in poor outcomes for women and newborn infants. However, limited data are available on the number of births and perinatal outcomes of pregnancies that began during the lockdown period.1 We hypothesised that lockdown would have reduced the number of pregnancies.

AIM: To review the evidence on safety of maintaining family integrated care practices and the effects of restricting parental participation in neonatal care during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. METHODS: MEDLINE, EMBASE, PsycINFO and CINAHL databases were searched from inception to the 14th of October 2020. Records were included if they reported scientific, empirical research (qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods) on the effects of restricting or promoting family integrated care practices for parents of hospitalized neonates during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic...
