Re : How big/% was your micro preemie at 2?

<t>Summer, yes we have 8 kids in the home. Let's just say it can be very interesting at times. But I'm fortunate that most are old enough to help out with the two babies. <br/> Kara, Joshua's doc says he is doing great at reaching his milestones.

How big/% was your micro preemie at 2?

Re : No more dairy allergy!! But on a nebulizer ...

Congrats! I know what its like to deal with a baby with a milk allergy. My baby is allergic to milk protein and soy and was even allergic to my breastmilk. He is on a hypoallergenic formula ($40 a can). I pray he grows out of it as well! So Hooray for Heinrich!!
