In Reply Thank you for the opportunity to respond to Chabra’s letter. In regard to the query about the definition of moderate and late preterm used for our study, “32-36 weeks’ completed gestation” refers to the same gestational age cutoffs that Chabra has quoted from the World Health Organization and National Institutes of Health, ie, 32 weeks and 0 days, to 36 weeks and 6 days, not including those born 37 weeks’ completed gestation, ie, 37 weeks and 0 days.
