My daughter turned 2 Aug. 8th! She weights just almost 23pounds. I am wondering if she is gaining normal, slow, or faster than other preemie babies that were born around her age. thanks!

My 2 year old weighs about the same (turned 2 in May) and weighs about 25 pounds. She was just under 2 lbs at birth. They said since she was so small, she'll probably be small for a while.

my preemie only weighed 24lbs when he started school at 4! he's now 6 and 33lbs but healthy which is all that matters. They all get there in their own time x

My son weighed around 30lbs at 2 he just caught up really quickly. My daughter who was full term is about to turn 2 and weighs just over 28lbs she is also shorter than her preemie brother was.

If she is gaining weight and staying on the same percentile and not dropped off too much then she should be fine

my son is 17.5 months and just now hit 20lbs. He is tall, but not an ounce of fat on him.
