Quoting Crimson Chin:
Everyone knows about my preemie lol but he was born at 35+6 and weighed 10lb 4oz. He had shoulder dystocia, a fractured clavicle, erbs palsy, extreme jaundice and feeding issues. He was blue and wasn't breathing a birth and had to be resuscitated. He's a little fighter. He spent a week in NICU. He's struggled with weight gain and feeding, has been diagnosed lactose intolerant and is finally gaining weight. Hes 16lb now.


Wow I'm still in shock that he was a premmie and weighed 10lbs!!!! That's crazy. But I am so sorry your little one went through all of that.. I hope he is doing well besides becoming a big boy!

He gained 2oz in 3 days so I guess that's a good thing , right ? He was 1lb 4oz at birth. I didn't know it was preemie awareness
