how much does my daughter have to weigh to come home?

It's not just about actual weight, it is about many things. It could be about ability to regulate temperature, lung function, feeding ability, and so on. She was clearly born prematurely, and often premature babies need to stay until they are equivalent to full term,as they are developmentally not necessarily ready to function outside your uterus without specialist care. It is never based purely on weight. Talk to your baby's pediatrician.

I hope she comes home soon! Congratulations! But there are many reasons aside from weight that we don't know about. This is strictly a question for her doctors and nurses who are keeping a diligent eye on her medical needs. Good luck momma!
