my baby boy was born at 34th week... everything was going fine during my pregnancy till my last scan... and doc sawumbilical cord wrap around his neck and his weight was 3.3 kg. doctor it will b problemetic and we decided to deliver him next day... he was born very fine but he had feeding issues... and i tried my best to feed him but he was unable to latch properly and we opt for formula feed .. n then he totally on formula milk... everyone blame me for this that u r fail to feed ur baby ... n so on... but he slaps all of them by achieving all milestones earlier than some babies in my family who are 1 and 2 months older than him.. he is very bright and intelligent and energetic child... god bless my little baby ...
I also delivered at 35 weeks, had breastfeeding issues. my baby is also on formula feed. felt relieved after reading your story that I'm not alone in this type of journey. Nice to read about your baby's growth. 👍😊

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.

My baby born at 29wks I have been told to abort at 19wks as my water broke and afi was zero but I continued as no afi no movements in scan dr can’t see baby developing normal r not just checking heart beat all went till 29 wks then I had abruption placenta (awash)broke into pieces had emer lscs no baby cry no breathing but by grace of god he survived was in nicu for 56 days had feeding issues hand contracture hip bone issue hernia slowly dealing with every problem alhumdullilah . Worst part vl b same time other baby born full term in same home so comparisons of baby every milestone hez doing dat dis y not ur baby
i can understand ur pain...their is lot of difference in full term and premature babies so their should be no comparison done between both.. premature babies need their time to grow and reach their milestone...people need to understand this...being a mother of a preimee i can understand how irritating it is to be compared by other kids...but be proud of ur unique baby ❤️🥰

i m mother of 32 week born premature baby girl.
during my pregnancy at the 20th week my Dr said there is not chance any more ve ready for abortion. but some how by the grace of God and family support and dr's guidence I manged my pregnancy till 32 weeks. the day I have completed my 32 weeks she came into my life born in the evening 7:30 pm sat 16nov 2019.
since she was premature so Dr kept her in NICU for about 3weeks. those three weeks were like painful bcoz to see ur baby in incubator and daily plan your day like to meet her and provide breast milk through pumping maching since she is the only child I have and these things are not normal for any normal mothers. like rather having you kid at home you have to see her in misc and wait for daily reports is everything normal or not waiting when she will get discharge and happily come to home. it's really a tough time for mother and father as well. while she was in NICU she has some eye infection which conitnus till she was three month old Dr said tear ducts not developed yet so it will take time along with this she has feeding issue can't suck so we used to give her breast milk initially with palada and the switch to spoon and now she is on formula milk. since she is premature she spits up too much milk with every feed even from nose also it was so scarey to see your kid crying when milk coming from nose.
my husband and me never slept a single night till she reduces these problems. she still have spit up problem but she is much better then in her initial weeks. its very tough to deal with premature baby. when people visit to she your baby and say ooh she is very small afraid to much. that time being a moth I got angery like crazy that whatever I have I had the best from God so go away if you scared or somthing.
I again thanks god for blessing us my cute little baby.
don't worry dear...
you are really really strong women.. so courageous... so dont let some mere silly comments dishearten you.. they really don't know how it's to bring up a preemie baby... I'm mom of a 27weeker... now actual 11months and corrected 8 months... i had an absolutely normal pregnancy till the day of my delivery...i was working till the last day...it just happened like that... my boy was only 930g at birth... now 6kg... slowly slowly improving.. attaining milestones also..
so be brave....if it were not for you your baby wouldn't have survived this long...
take care dear
all love to you
