My son Maxwell was born 6 weeks early and spent 10 days in the NICU. Now he is 17 months old and still not walking, talking and just started sitting and crawling at 12 months. Is this "normal" for other people with premies? Even for his adjusted age he is pretty far behind. My husband and I have our son in a state program that brings physical therapist into your home to work with your child. He shows some improvment but I have several girlfriends that had babies at the same time and they are putting my little guy to shame. I cant help but be stressed and it's hard for my friends that had their babies on time to understand.
