At just 1 month old, infants show signs of temperament troubles that can turn into mood and behavior problems later in life, a new study suggests.
Infants that are fussy when they’re three to four weeks old are more likely to develop childhood mental health problems including anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and behavior problems, the researchers say.
“It turns out, you can predict very well from infant fussiness to later problems,” said study researcher Beth Troutman, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Iowa.
