I can certainly relate to have a premmie baby!! My son was born at 25wks and experienced all sorts of problems and issues.

He's now a strapping toddler (18mths) and nothing stands in his way now despite his ill jump start to life.

Hi Cassie,
I had my little girl at 29 weeks. She was born May 2002 and weighed 1040gm. We spent 9 weeks in hospital as a growing prem and thank god we have had almost perfect bills of health. My husbands cousin was also in hospital at the same time as us (odd co-incidence) and he was born at 24 weeks and is the poster child of what can go wrong and still survive (hes a little fighter).
I expressed and breastfed until she was 16 1/2 months old (14 months corrected) and believe that this is why we haven't really had many illnesses.
I did find some premmie emails by searching in the categories. I'll see if I can find them and do another post to let you know where they are.

If you go to the home section and fill in search with "premmies" you will find several posts. I just did and there was a terrific post about a little girl born November at 26 weeks. I cried reading it. What sort of work do you do with prems Deb?

My little girl was born at 27 weeks and 3 days, weighing only 650 grams. She came home 3 days before her due date and spent a further 3 months on home oxygen.
She will be 1 year old (9 mths adjusted) on the 13th of January and other than having asthma is doing well.
My email address is heather@aacsis.com.au if you want to chat.
Hi there, sorry about the late reply. I'm a nurse so basically do all the cares, bloods, resusitations, admissions, care plans, establishment of breast feeding etc

Hi cassie,
