Preterm birth is a traumatic event both for the mother and for the child and nutrition represents a problematic area. The trauma of prematurity may lead to dysfuctional early mother-child interactions with a high risk of developing difficulties during the lactation and the weaning periods. Within this thereotical framework, we present the preliminary results of a study aimed at exploring the transition to eating autonomy during the second year of life: a topic still little explored in literature. The study involved 20 mother-child preterm dyads and 17 dyads at term assessed at 18 and 24 months. The child eating habitus, maternal mental state and the characteristics of mother- child eating interaction are explored. Result highlight preterm children were less breastfed and show less autonomy during the meal compared to full-term children.
Keywords: Prematurity, mother-child interaction, eating difficulties, maternal distress.
