    Question Preemie Milk Question

    I have been reading on a few diffrent sites about storage of breastmilk and they give diffrent time peroids for preemies. Now my question is when are they not considered a preemie anymore has far has milk storage goes. Do I always follow the preemie quidelines, or do I just follow the normal.....

    He is ten pds now, and almost three months old. I was lucky he was a real pro at breastfeeding.....

    TIA

    ok this is what Ive heard.....I may be wrong,cos Im quoting a jerkoff...
    premature babies remain premature babies
    I guess what he means is that, whereas they may outgrow a lot of thngs they stil are what they are.the things they tell us to do special need to be done even if they are big. I will say this though, a nicu nurse told me 6 hours at room temp, which isnt right for a preemie, but we honestly didnt catch it till a week later.It didnt make him sick.He didnt seem to care.(I do do the 4 hours now though)

    I was thinking it was four hours for a preemie, just wanted to see what others thought.

    Thanks
