  • I don't have any personal experience... but my cousin & his wife had 3 preemies. The middle one was born about 3 mos early & they didn't know if he would pull through or not.

    Now, he's the most rambunctious and... I'll just say "round" lol... one of the bunch. No lasting effects at all --- I wouldn't believe he was a preemie if I didn't KNOW it first hand.

    G'luck to you!

  • my nephew was a preemie.. now he's a 4 year old. He's short, (always has been his 2 year old sister is taller than him) and had multiple health problems as a baby. Otherwise, he's happy, healthy, rowdy, and completely normal!
