This study originally recruited pregnant mothers from 2001-2009, and has measured over 1600 babies. A wide range of data was collected, through pregnancy and until infants were 2 years of age. This is allowing us to investigate how maternal factors and metabolism, environmental exposures, genes, early nutrition, hormones and other biological markers all affect:
- Early childhood growth and body composition
- Infancy diet
- Early play behaviour
- Early male reproductive tract development

Cambridge Baby Growth Study II – currently recruiting…
We are currently recruiting babies into the Cambridge Baby Growth Study II. This was set up in 2011 to enrich the original CBGS cohort with two groups of infants: babies born small and babies born to mothers with diabetes (either gestational diabetes or pre-pregnancy diabetes).
