Here, babies that are born before 32 weeks and/or with less than 1.5 kilos get a special follow up of their development until the age of 5. IMG_3427[23208] (2)Laura falls under that category for her birth weight of 1.3kg. She had her first appointment of the sort on Monday for her 4 months adjusted age. It’s basically consults with a psychologist, a physiotherapist and a neonatal pediatrician.

I said it before, I really enjoy the checkups because the girls are doing so well but there’s also a small fear of being told something bad. So far so good though. Everyone was impressed with her and she’s showing no signs of developmental delays.

Next check up is at 8 months adjusted, then a year, then 2 year and then at 5 before starting school.
