    Re: Premies and 6 month breast feed period

    I always go by the corrected age and then after that see if the baby is ready. My preemie just wasn't ready for solids till she was over a year old.

    Re: When did your premie start solids?

    Well I waited until mine was 6 mths adjusted (she was 15 weeks early) but she just wasn't ready then, so I tried in a few weeks and she wasn't ready. Basically she was around 12 mths adjusted before...

    Re: Iron for a preemie?

    I was told to give my 25 wker iron supplements after the nicu but I decided not to. I had her iron tested and she's always been fine. I was even told that I had to give her cereal for the iron at 6...

    Re: Daughter not gaining weight

    ((hugs))

    Re: update on baby matt

    I don't see why they can't weigh him with the clothes and diaper on? I mean if you do it before the feed, then after it will be the same. There's no need to take off the clothes. I'd definitely speak...

    Re: preemies catching up

    If he was born that early, i'd definitely go by due date. Mine had issues with solid foods and wasn't till she was almost 1 year old before taking any. Luckily she is breastfeed :)

    Hi.
