Relations between fetal age, age after birth (chronological) and absolute age are presented. The necessity of use of absolute age instead of obsteric age categories in assessing the developmental state of neonates and infants is shown. An analysis of data on 2237 male newborns and 2423 female newborns revealed relationships between body mass and fetal age. On the basis of regression analysis, various developmental tendencies in body mass of neonates are presented. As an appendix, percentile charts of body mass applicable in assessment of the developmental state and age of newborns at the age of 32-43 weeks are included.
