Hi Raven, congratulations on the birth of your little boy! My son was born at 24 weeks 3 days back in 2002 and was quite sick for many months. He's ten now and Still! has trouble gaining weight although his father and myself are both of small stature.

I remember how every bit of weight gained counted for so much in the beginning..... hopefully the nurses and dietitians can give you some tricks to fatten him up. We just had a ten year reunion with two families who also were in hospital with preemies, one of the boys is still as tiny as my little guy, the other one is huge! and you'd never know his history. Is this your first child? If it is it can be quite a "welcome to parenthood" having a preemie.
