If your child was born at 37+ weeks old, he or she was NOT premature. Early, yes. I had a 26 weeker at 3lbs and it just irks me when people talk about their 6-8 pound "preemie".

Weight has nothing to do with prematurity status, gestation does

I agree. My grandson was born at 31 weeks and spent 6 weeks in the hospital.

How? Why? It's not premature. It's early full term from my understanding.

I was born a month early at 5 lbs 15 ozs and drs still say I'm a preemie.

I had my daughter last week at 34+3. She was 7lbs 8oz. Doesn't make her any less of a preemie because I have big babies. We are on day 8 in the NICU.
