  • NOT, the baby's lungs would not fully be developed as well as other organs, nor would it have developed all of its immunities and would be very prone to sickness.
    Is this a possibility for you due to some extremeness?
    If possible try to go to term, or at least another 3 more months it has a better chance, of surviving. Good luck.

  • Why are you answering this like she has a choice? No one delivers a baby at 6 months unless they have no other option!!!

    6 months is very early, but many babies do survive. I taught a little girl last year that was born at 23 weeks and weighed less than two pounds. Although she has some learning delays she is a happy healthy third grader. They can do amazing things for preterm babies now. Although the prognosis isn't always good there is a chance that things will be OK long term.

  • Not at all, find a graph and see what all the baby can do at only 6 months. I know that his/her lungs aren't completely developed. Why do you ask?

  • Definitely not. There's a reason they bake at 98.6F for 9 months. At 6 months his/her brain and other vital organs are not fuly developed, there is little to no baby fat and he/she will struggle with health issues for the rest of his/her life because of the premature birth. Avoid this if at all possible.
