Low–moderate prenatal alcohol exposure and risk to child behavioural development: a prospective cohort study. BJOG 2010;117:1139–1152.

PEDIATRICS Vol. 123 No. 2 February 1, 2009, pp. 547-554. No association was found between low levels of prenatal alcohol consumption and language delay at any period of time in a child's development, compared to mothers who engaged in heavy or binge drinking.

American Journal of Epidemiology July 30, 2008, doi: 10.1093/aje/kwn186. Researchers found that babies whose mothers reported binge drinking during the first trimester were at an increased risk of having cleft lips and cleft palates than were babies whose mothers were nondrinkers.
