Dear All,

I am a new member of this site. I am hell lot of worried about my daughter. She was born with a weight of 1.43 Kg. She was in NICU for 23 days and when relived her weight was 1.87 Kg. She has been conctantly gaining weight and we are visiting doctors regularly and getting her vacinted timely.

However I am worried, as I read that chances of survival of very low birth weight clid are low. According to doctors all her tests and checks are fine and she is very active. Please suggest what precautions should I take and how to ensure that my angel grooms out well. She was born in the begining of the 9th Month. However a case of IUGR awere her growth was restricted by couple of weeks. All her body parts are active. 

The dosctors have asked for regular eye check ups..please tell me if these things are normal.

premature children may or may not show delayed growth.

if doctor is saying that the child is active and there is nothing is worry about, you may relax a bit. however, it is always advisable to keep an eye on the development. especially sensory modalities. you may need to stimulate her cognitive development more pro-actively.

but dont worry too much, as long as she is happy and healthy

stimulate the child's mind by doing puzzles, crafts, reading books, etc together. It helps to take the child to a park and show various varieties of leaves or show how coin sinks in water but a plastic piece doesn't. Such activities enhance cognitive development.
