  1. aAll estimates are adjusted for maternal race, education, marital status, age at delivery, income, prenatal vitamin use, delivery method, maternal BMI, and prenatal serum cotinine concentrations. Both waist circumference and body fat percentage are also adjusted for child’s age. All urinary triclosan concentrations have been creatinine standardized
  2. bFor prenatal analysis All: N = 220, Boys: N = 99, Girls: N = 121. For early childhood analysis All: N = 212, Boys: N = 94, Girls: N = 118. For age 8 year analysis All: N = 218, Boys: N = 99, Girls: N = 119
  3. cEffect measure modification p-values were determined using a two sample z-test to compare the effect estimates in boys and girls
