I am experiencing mixed feelings today. Mainly because [xx(] plumbing problems that continue to develop here at home. Anyways, never mind that!
My son was born 2 yrs ago. He started out 2 lbs 5 oz 14 ins. Born at 31 weeks. (thats 2 month premature). Natan is now 2 yrs, 4 month and 4 days old[:p].
We just had review at Infant Devep Center at Stanford. Today, he weighs 22 3/4 lbs and 31 inches long. Growing within 5 percentile and he is on the curve line. He is a short little guy, but very friendly. Dr said he is doing great overall. We need to continue speech 1x week, PT 1x week and OT 1x a month and continue with special program at Sarc 2x week.
I am really happy he is doing well health wise,[:D] but am concerned that he will be short for age. I know every child is different as far as growth patterns.
Qu. Have more experienced preemie moms seen difference in height after awhile? Maybe after puperty? DH is 6,2 and I am 5, 3.
