  • a In this model, the OR (95% CI) associated with each count of the 3 neonatal morbidities was 2.8 (2.3–3.4).

  • b In this model, the OR (95% CI) associated with each count of the 3 neonatal morbidities was 2.9 (2.3–3.5).

  • c In this model, the OR (95% CI) associated with each count of the 3 neonatal morbidities was 2.9 (2.3–3.5).

  • d In this model, the OR (95% CI) associated with each count of the 3 neonatal morbidities was 2.8 (2.3–3.4).
