Hi... I have a preemie as well (6 weeks) and they should use their adjusted age until they are at least 2, maybe even 2 1/2. By then most children have caught up.

Hi I don't have a premmie baby but some friends do and they still talk about corrected age. I think they still go by that but not sure when it stops. Hope your bub is going well.
