In this study, we explored acquisition of expected feeding skills by premature infants through the first post-term year, and examined, within transactional developmental theory, the contribution of infant conditions (motor development and physical robustness as estimated by weight-for-age) and caregiving conditions (mother's regulation of negative affect and behavior during feeding)to skill acquisition. Participants were 45 very low birth-weight infants and their mothers. A checklist of feeding skills was applied to a feeding observed at 1, 4, 8, and 12 months post-term age (PTA). Assessments at 4 months PTA of motor development with the Bayley II Psychomotor Development Index (PDI), weight-for-age z score (WAZ), and mother's regulation of negative affect and feeding behavior (RNAB) with the Parent-Child Early Relational Assessment were used as predictors in a nominal logistic regression analysis. Graphical analysis showed three patterns of skill acquisition--increasing, decreasing, and mixed increasing and decreasing. The slope of the line for the increasing and decreasing patterns was significantly different from zero. Neither the infant's PDI nor WAZ contributed significantly to the pattern. RNAB, however, was a significant positive predictor of a decreasing pattern. How a mother's feeding behavior contributes to a decreasing pattern of feeding skill acquisition by VLBW infants needs study.
