The article presents a research on the effect of timing of umbilical cord clamping on iron status of infants in Mexico. The study was conducted on 358 expecting mothers randomly selected into two groups: early clamping and delayed clamping. Findings revealed that a slight delay in clamping the umbilical cord after delivery may prevent newborns from developing iron deficiency in early life.
