Babies who are born weighing 2 kg or less double the risk of suicide compared with babies born weighing 3.25 to 3.75 kg. Babies are born with a body length of 47 cm or less, the risk of suicide significantly compared with babies with a body length of 50-51 cm. Suicide risk is also increased in infants born to mothers who did not graduate high school or at least have 3 other children.
