Babies that are premature need to be taken care of for the first two years of their life. They need help expecially when they are less than 3 pounds. The baby might need special formula so he/she can gain weight. About 4 months after taking iron premature babies have reached the normal iron rate as normal babies. They eventually catch up to the regular size baby. With a premature baby they need to be feed 8-10 times a day.
I think that they are so cute. They need to be taken care of very closely and well. They should be treated as any other regular size baby. The only difference is that they are smaller. You should be proud if you have a baby period. They can be so smart and itelligant. I do believe that it takes them longer to be as healthy as a regular baby but it will eventually get there over time.
