Is there anyone out there with a preemie and a full-term child that has felt this way? I feel really guilty. My youngest is about to turn one and I am just not as into it as I was with my first. My first born was a preemie due to IC. He spent 49 days in the NICU. As you all know it changed us forever. He is a healthy and happy 5 year old and you would never know he was a preemie. We decided to have another child so DS would have a sibling. One of my fears was that I would favor my oldest. I just feel closer to my 5 year old. Is it because he is older and can communicate, or is it this special preemie bond. I feel like a bad mom.
