Re : Preschool and Preemie attachment

<t>I think it all depends. Part of me hated to go back to work but I had no choice. Michael is 22 mos now, has been at a new in-home daycare since Jan and he loves it. So much that he pushes me out the door. I have many moments where I want to stay home with him and it's hard to go back to work afte...

Re : NEC??

<t>HOneslty I have to say that it sounds like NEC. Yes we have experience with this as Michael was diagnosed with NEC. He was at a NICU near home, just 13 beds, and about 3 weeks into his life they were having issues with him digesting food, etc. They suspected NEC right away,called us at home at 12...

Re : Synagis Question

<t>I have FEP BCBS and my policy is good..Michael rec'd synagis from Dec 08 to April 09 but they would not approve a second year of synagis and most insurnance companies won't once the preemie is home and has grown and is into a 2nd season. Michael ended up having a supsected case of both H1N1 and R...

Re : where do you buy pants for 1-2 year old

<t>My son is 21 mos and about 31 inches/20 lbs. I have found the best waisted pants are Carter's or Osh Kosh, nothing else fits his waist even if they are adjustable. He's just now in 12 mos top/bottom and 18 mos pjs. We will do a lot of overalls this winter. I can buy tops anywhere but pants..usual...

Re : height/weight at 18 mos

<t>Thanks ladies, I appreciate the support. I honestly try not to fret over Michael having been a preemie - he's happy, healthy, full of life...but you know, sometimes you get bugged. I wonder if I should add in the pediasure or the carnation drink (I like that stuff too). <br/> <br/> The pedi did s...

height/weight at 18 mos

<t>I think I'm just having a day where I wish my pregnancy had been different and Michael not a preemie/IUGR baby.<br/> <br/> At his 18 mos check up today he weighs 18.6 lbs and 30 inches long. The pedi mentioned doing a monthly weight check and said he's not worried or overly concerned but just wan...

Re : Why can't I get over this already??

<t>I just have to echo what others have said and it's something you may never get over you just figure out how to live with it.<br/> <br/> I'll admit I feel guilty at times. I had severe PE/HELLP at 25 weeks in 1995. My son only survived 2 weeks. With Michael I was on bedrest and he had IUGR, we mad...
