Both my daughters weighed a little over 2lbs. Courtney now 20 was 2lbs 13oz at 29 weeks and Megan weighed 2lbs 4 1/2 oz at 33 weeks. Courtney did well gaining weight fast after leaving the hopsital after 8wks in the NICU. Megan was in the Failure Thrive stage and is shorter with some mental disabilities. I love my daughters. Your daughter will do just fine.

My daughter was born at 27 weeks, she weighed 2 lbs. 4 oz, which we were told was good for her gestation. She quickly dropped below 2 lbs, but gained again. She stayed ventilated in the NICU for what seemed like forever. She went home about 13 weeks later. She is now 2 1/2, and weighs more than her brother, who will be 4. She is delayed in speech, but makes up for it in attitude!!
