??? You are obviously frustrated but I am not sure what you are looking for in terms of this forum... do you want support or advice? I am sorry that things are not going well and I am glad that despite being premature your daughter is doing relatively well.... as for the development... have you talked to your pediatrician about these things? Are you reading to her and having one sided conversations with her as much as possible? Do you and your husband play with her whenever possible and try to encourage her to move around? I know at three this might seem silly but if your not, try having her do supervised tummy time every day, it might help. Try tapping into a local support group if you have one (family and friends).

Hopefully your doctor can help you out if those other tips don't work.... and I hope you do not feel like I was attacking you or calling you a bad parent but that is not my intent at all. I'm just throwing out whatever advice I can think of.

Oh! Try to expose her to other children her age or slightly younger for short periods of time regularly... it might help with her development and see if you have any local support groups so that way you can find other moms who can help. If not, then I pray you find the support and resources you are looking for here.

Best wishes!
