My baby was born 8 days early and had a low birth weight (5lb, 13oz), a clubbed foot, bradycardia, an 'abnormal' thyroid, a low platelet count and a cyst on the brain. Just today, we were given the all-clear by the Paediatrician (with exception to the clubbed foot which we are still working on)... a weight has been lifted. We had no warning of any of these problems prior to the birth so it was cerainly a shock to the system - especially when our first child was born so healthy (and weighed 8lb, 8oz). To look at him now you wouldn't think anything had been wrong with him - he's just a beautiful happy little baby - it just feels like it's taken years to get to this point though and it's only been 5 months.
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
