My son was born @ 35 weeks, 5lbs 11 oz. He is now 15 months old, 18lbs, 28in long, wearing 6-9 month clothing but a happy, laughing, walking and trying to climb little boy!
Oh, and VERY happy facing backwards in the car! He talks to the other cars and trucks while we are out and about! It is sooo funny!

My preemie was born at 34 weeks. She was 6 lbs at birth, made it up to 18 lbs by her first year. Her growth has seriously slowed down since she started crawling/walking/running, though. Now she is 31 months and her measurements are 35 inches tall and 25 lbs (she's only gained 1/2 pound in the past 7 months, but has grown at least an inch)

My daughter was 6 weeks premature as well, but she weighed 5 lbs 7 oz and was 18.5 inches long. Now, at 3 months, she is 10 lbs 11 oz and 22 1/4 inches long. After reading everyone else's I can't help but think I had a big preemie. lol

I understand how you feel. I was there twice and my baby was two years old before she decided she wanted to walk. The time will come and you will be so happy.

I just don't understand how some people don't know how it feels to have a preemie is really hard to see your child in the nicu fighting for their lifes and all we can do is love them, hold them etc. and to think what the future for them would be.my child is 14 months and not walking still and I do worry but doctor said that there is still time. but now it doesn't bother me anymore she is my child and when the time comes i will be happy.

My son was born on Christmas day in 1997 - 11 weeks premature weighing a mere 2lb's. He is now 12 and is a normal, and healthy. for the first year and a half of his life he was tiny in comparison to others his age and it felt like I had a new born for months. His development gradually balanced out and he no longer looks younger than his peer groups.

Quoting Shannon:

My son was born 5 weeks early. he was 5lbs. 9oz and 19.5 inches long. He is almost 4 months now and weighs over 12lbs and 22 inches long. Imagine if he would've went full term!!



Hi Shannon! Just wanted to say, my son was also born 5 weeks early due to HELLP Syndrome - he weighed 7 pounds and was 19 inches long. I wonder how big he would have been had he gone to full term. There was no gestational diabetes or anything, just big and healthy. He grew like a monster until he was 9 months old (he weighed 24 pounds at nine months) and now is 13.5 months and only weighs 25 pounds - that walking makes the weigh take longer to come on!

My daughter was born at 29 1/2 weeks and weighed 3 lb 6 oz and 16 3/4 inches. She turned 1 yesterday and is 20 lb 14 oz and 29 1/2 inches. She is crawling and cruising along furniture. She also has a buggy that she pushes behind for a couple of steps. You would never know about her fragile beginning.

My son was 3 1/2 weeks early and still was 7 pounds at birth (he was projected to be 10 if I went to term). He's 3 1/2 months and just short of 17 pounds.

Don't worry about her not walking yet she'll still be "on target" as long as she starts by 14 mo. My daughter was born at 35 weeks and 4 days She was 5lbs and 5oz and 17"long. she is 21 months and she weighs about 22lbs. She didn't start walking until she was 15mo., and you'd never believe that now. She's always been a little behind on large motor skills, but she is an ace at the fine motor skill. I still get "Gosh she's really small to be turning 2." She's high spirited though.
