and wanted to share my experience with my preemie!

My son was born on June 18th 2009 exactly 5 weeks early. He weighed 5lb 1oz and 18 inches long. He spend his first 2 wks in the NICU and was discharged on my birthday! It was the best present I could ever get!

He spent his first 3 days of life on CPAP and then was breathing on his own without the need of oxygen or a tube or anything. He ate my breast milk through a tube for 3 or 4 days and then a bottle, breast or the tube which they left in his nose just in case! He is now 4 and a half months old and weighs 14lb 7.5 oz and is 27 inches long! He is measuring in the 50th percentile for height and weight on the regular baby growth chart (not the preemie one) and passed his developmental assessment for 4 months with flying colors! I'm so proud of him! My man!

Hugs,

Kaila
