I have birth to a baby girl at 32 weeks, she weighed around 1200 gms. Even though she was premature she was healthy and active. However she could not take breastfeed since she weak. So for two months I had to express my milk and feed her using a spoon (I never used a bottle to feed her). It was difficult and the baby was not gaining much weight . Once she turned 2 months, she started taking breastfeed directly and thereafter things became much easier. She also started putting on weight. Her growth was normal too and she was achieving her milestones in time. After about a year no one could tell she was a premature born child. Today she is healthy and beautiful 12 year girl.

A 32 week old baby was not easy to digest . The challenges were big and small. Next to me in my hospital room the crib was empty , due to c section I couldn’t see my baby till the catheter was removed , seeing her in the NICU the biggest challenge , everyday waiting for her blood reports ( jaundice there not there) , scared to hold her she was so tiny , not able to feed her as she couldn’t latch , once we got her home feeding her , burping her, all the spitting up , the challenge to keep her warm as they cannot regulate their own body temperature and yes people around she is so tinyyyyy. But now she is 5 months all the above doesn’t matter i can face and chase more challenges for her . Trust me god blessed us with these babies because we are strong.

Hello All My daughter was born on 33 weeks and her birth weight was 2 kg. There were few challenges for us but one thing I can say out of my experience is we have to take very good care of preemies especially hygiene. And yes the milestones for preemie will be a bit delayed so not yo worry about that . They will achieve all their milestones at their own time.

i had my baby at 32 weeks. thankfully he did not need oxygen support. he was in SCBU for 12 days. i cud not see him much bcoz my bp was too high n i was in icu. he is 1 month old now. his birth weight was 1.5 kg. at 3 weeks it was 2.2 kg. haven't checked after that. he is doing fine but facing lots of trouble with burping and reflux. he doesn't breastfeed at all. have to give EBM and pre-nan. my milk supply has reduced considerably so mostly formula fed only.
did your baby start with eye contact n social smile?

Hieee dear mother of 2 years boy Mujhe Bhi baby weight ka Bohot tension tha ... meine socha formula milk se baby ka weight badaega par nahi formula milk se baby ka weight nahi badta, usko atleast 1 year tak breast feed karna ,Breast milk is best woh jaldi kam karta baby ka weight badne me ..Breast milk ka supply badane k liye eat bread, dry fruits, dal grains like bajari ,Breast milk seriously produce hoga... and afta 6 months give her homemade food like morning give her oats afternoon plan khichadi evening ragi night time give her dal boiled veggies roti .. roti and veggies u grind dem give .. but make sure give her homemade food... and last big no to cerelac
