  • My oldest wasn't in the NICU at all, he was small but otherwise healthy. My youngest on the other hand had to stay 12 days and had problems with apnea and his heart stopping the first week of his life. Very happy to say he's a healthy 5 year old today with no lasting issues from being born prematurely.
