Brought home weighing 4 lbs 4 oz. They wanted to keep her in until she was 5 pounds, but decided she was well enough to go home. :)

wow she came home at 3lbs!!! My little girl came home after 3 months of being in NICU and she wieghted 5lbs. When she was born she weighed 2lbs. I think its amazing the amount of care the nurses give to all of the little kids that small. I don't know what it would be like without my little Angel.

I had premature twins weighing 1lb 12oz and 2lbs 3oz at birth. They were born at 27 weeks. Once my son who was 2lbs 3oz reached 5lbs he could go home...it took about 2.5 months. My other son had other complications and came home weighing 5lbs 2oz after being in the NICU for 4.5 months.

The NICU my twins were in would not allow us to take them home until the were over 5 lbs. and healthy. So they were both just a few ounces over 5 lbs.
