Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

It can be difficult taking care of a premie. They do need to eat a little more often than a full term baby because they don't have as much fat. Other than that I'm pretty sure its about the same. I'm not 100% sure because I only have my son right now he was born 5 weeks early at 4lbs 12oz and 16 1/2 inches. Now he's 9 months and probably around 20 lbs and maybe 30 inches. Hoping this one comes on time instead of early. Good luck and enjoy your time with hannah
How far along were you when they enduced you?
32 weeks
ooops hit the wrong number i was 24 weeks they said i had some kind of complication and i wouldnt be able to carry her to full term so they enduced me but luckly she was 4 pounds and 14 inches long so i got to bring her home the next day
