my son was born a month early he will be 4 months dec 9th, he is getting stronger holding his head but he doesnt want to roll he kicks his legs and throws his arms everywhere, i know they said to take a month off his age which would just make him 3 months, i dont think i should worry about him, i just wonder if anyone else has a preemie who maybe wondering when to expect these things.

  • I had a preemie she was 3 pounds 3 ounces. But, she also was healthy, could eat, breathe on her own. She didnt need assis. Thank God! But yes she has done things late. Im not sure if it cause she was born early or B/c, I really held her all the time and never put her down. So she sat up late, walked at 14 months. And shes still in speech. She also 4 and half now. But, i noticed other kids doing things alot earlier but, dont worry. Talk to your doctor if you are worried. What blessing you have.... just enjoy the time you have. B/c, b4 u know it he will running around getting into everything.

  • yes my son did that too, he was 6 wks early, he was delayed about a month in motor and speech development until about 2 yrs old... now he is king of the jungle gym... dont worry about that short of a delay, he will catch up eventually.
