Re : Going at it alone--a preemie parent.

<t>I wish I had the answer for you...sometimes I am in the same boat. Michael's father and I are seperated and as far as his medical issues (which have been very few) but even just trips to pedi, staying home from work due to illness, overnight hospital stay for RSV, etc..I've done it ALONE.<br/> <b...

Re : Really need advice

Re : Formula questions

My 2lb 10 oz boy was on Enfacare from the day he left the NICU, I kept him on it for about 3 mos and then the pedi said it was ok to transition him to Nestle (free at daycare). At age 1 we moved to whole milk.

Re : Update and some questions concering walking

<t>Michael just had his 15 month check up and adjusted age he is at 13 mos. He crawls very very fast and "table walks" around the house. If he can grab it while standing he is on the move. Honestly I wouldn't worry at all. The pedi mentioned that most, not all, full term babies begin to walk around ...

Re : speech delays

I suggest looking into Early Intervention (or a Birth to 3) program, they are free and you can still be enrolled since your son is not 3 yet. Michael is only 15 mos but is enrolled to follow his hearing loss and overal speech development.
