My 3 year old

She was born a micro preemie and only weighed 1lb 10oz. Now at 3 she looks like a 18 month old. I always get asked is she is a dwarf child and at first it didn't upset me because she is small but I get asked that all the time. Her doctor says she is growing fine just slower because she did stop growing when I was pregnant with her.

Don't look at it as a bag thing when people ask. Look at it as your chance to educate them about her... The micro premie & all the stuff that goes along with it. Some people dont realize that stuff is real. I mean they know but they dont realize until it slaps them in the face.

I'm so sorry! I'm glad your baby lived though and like Kaytee said it's your chance to educate them.

I used to tell everyone who asked about her being a micro preemie until one lady had the nerve to say it was probably drinking or drugs that caused her to be small.

Well, sounds like--from what I've read on here--that people find something stupid to say about EVERYthing... so.... I would just ignore a comment like that.

On the ironic/funny/plus side you could look at it like this- most moms wish their kids could stay small longer. Your daugher will :)

You could just tell people you put a brick on her head when she started walking ;) hehe
