I would think you would have to take into account how long he was sick for and how it pushed him back a bit with his development. My fiance's cousin had a baby who ended up going into heart failure when he was only 3 weeks old, and he didn't get better enough to start reaching his milestones till he was 4-5 months old, he is behind on his milestones but he is eventually reaching them. I would think it would be the same as with a premature baby in a way. If you are really worried talking to your doctor/pediatrician would help ease your worries or help you help him reach his milestones. Have faith, if he's a happy, growing baby he should be fine :) Good luck.

Awe poor little guy must have been so sick. I am so glad he made it through. Meningitis can be scary.

That being said, if your pediatrician isn't worried, don't worry about him reaching milestones. He is gonna hit his marks at his own pace.
