Figure S1. Estimated infant weight growth curves from joint mixed effects regression models in Fels Longitudinal Study subjects for offspring of overweight and obese vs. normal weight (A) mothers and (B) fathers, and estimated infant length growth curves for offspring of overweight and obese vs. normal weight (C) mothers and (D) fathers.
Figure S2. Estimated infant BMI growth curves from independent mixed effects regression models in Fels Longitudinal Study subjects born in 1970–2008 (birth year tertile 3) for offspring of overweight and obese vs. normal weight mothers.
Table S1. Descriptive statistics for infant anthropometric measurements in Fels Longitudinal Study subjects overall and by age at measurement.
Table S2. Parameter estimates from three mixed effects growth models that describe the effects of maternal BMI category, paternal BMI category, and maternal BMI category and paternal BMI category combined on infant growth from birth to 3.5 years in Fels Longitudinal Study subjects.
Table S3. P-values for the global associations between maternal or paternal BMI category and offspring weight and length growth curves from birth to 3.5 years from mixed effects models.
