My not so small Preemie anymore~

Postby megan78 » Wed Sep 16, 2009 01:13 am

My son Rowan was at the DR. today. He is 21 months old and was born 11 weeks early and weighed 2 lbs 3 oz at his smallest. he has always been short but today, he was 32 1/4 inches tall and 27 pounds!!!!! he is getting taller and is in the 20th percentile for height! The Dr. Said he is a little heavy for his height. I'm so proud of him and amazed what doctors and nurses can do to keep babies alive when they are so small. Also amazed how quickly time flies :(
Just wanted to share, such a proud mom! My amazing little miracle!

That's great news!! WTG!! My 3rd DD was born at 36 weeks & at almost 21 months she's still barely at 20 lbs & just under 31 inches. I need feeding tips from you! ;)

Excellent news! Isn't it exciting when your child is on the charts - 20th percentile is great for such a tiny baby. Good job, momma!
