It is critical for premature infants to maintain a constant temperature. Premature babies often have less body fat compared to full-term infants, which can make it difficult for them to regulate their own body temperature.
Infants can also lose body heat as much as four times faster than adults. If a baby’s skin temperature drops just 1°C, oxygen use can increase by up to 10%.
