my daughter was born at 27 weeks. she was a big girl at 2.5lbs. she was in the NICU for two months and came home at a whopping 5+ lbs. her development has been delayed a little and she started physical therapy at around six months old. she is now 13 months adjusted and i am finding her speech is not advancing as a 13 months should. is this because of her early birth? i am just worried she has developmental delays that i am not addressing.
her pediatrician just says lets put her in speech, but the speech doesnt seem to be making any difference
am i expecting too much of her? her brothere was born at 34 weeks and is develpoing just fine. i just want whats best for her. any advice would be greatly appreciated
