Objectives: This study was undertaken to compare the relation of low birth weight (LBW) categories and level of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) of LBW neonates with maternal postpartum body mass index (BMI). Materials and Methods: This was a hospital-based observational cross-sectional study conducted in the Department of Neonatology and in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Results: A total of 81 LBW neonates and mothers pairs were included in the study. There was no difference in LBW categories with maternal postpartum BMI categories (P = 0.15, post hoc). There was an increase in LDL level in the neonates of the obese mother (P = 0.02), but the difference of LDL level was not significant in the neonates of the normal and overweight mother. Conclusion: LBW categories do not differ with maternal BMI categories, but the LDL level is more in the neonates of obese mother than that of overweight mothers and normal weight mother.
