My daughter was born at 28 wks, due to me being diabetic her longs didn't mature at the right pace. We spent almost 9 weeks in NICU. She was a large baby, weighing in at 2.89kg(6.37 pounds) and 33 cm(12 inches). I was so lucky with her, she never got sick, no flu, no cold, not even a fever after her immunisations. Until she reached one year. she is 2 and 4 mnths now and has been in the hospital 9 times with pneumonia, She is sick all the time, running nose, heavy cough, heavy slimy chest, and sometimes watery eyes. I'm taking her to my Pediatrician once a month for a check up but he can't seem to find anything wrong with her. We are at the GP at least twice a month and I'm also using the nubelizer on her every night. I can't even risk leaving her hair to dry on it's own after I washed it, cause I can know for shure that we will be visiting the ER within 24 hrs, or even let her outside without shoes, it's so hard to even plan weekends away from home, cause I'll never know how she is going to be by the weekend.
I would like to know, because this is what my Pead said, Is it because she was prem? I meen she is almost 2 and half and she reached all her milestones and such in time, with out problems. Can this realy be because she was prem and had a condition called TTN or respiratory distress syndrome.
Is there anyone with the same problem?
