Abstract: The purpose of this study was to compare the behavior of full-term small-for-gestational age (SGA) with full-term appropriate-for gestational age (AGA) infants in the first year of life. We prospectively evaluated 68 infants in the 2ndmonth, 67 in the 6thmonth and 69 in the 12thmonth. The Bayley Scales of Infant Development-II were used, with emphasis on the Behavior Rating Scale (BRS). The groups were similar concerning the item "interest in test materials and stimuli"; there was a trend toward differences in the items "negative affect", "hypersensitivity to test materials" and "adaptation to change in test materials". The mean of Raw Score was significantly lower for the SGA group in the items "predominant state", "liability of state of arousal", "positive affect", "soothability when upset", "energy", "exploration of objects and surroundings", "orientation toward examiner". A lower BRS score was associated with the SGA group in the 2ndmonth.
