My 2nd baby was born at 35 weeks weighing 2,3kg and had no problems. Her oupa actually calls her "speedy" becasue she's fast with all her milestones. She crawled at 6 months and walked at 8 1/2 months exactly on the day. When she potty trained she took off her nappy at 2 1/2 years and never wore it again in the day and night. (Ofcourse with big brothers encouragement, he was born at 37 weeks). Now I'm pregnant with baby nr.3. Having a caesarian at 37 weeks on 16 January.
I worked when I had my son, but am fortunate to be a home mommy since he was 3 1/2 years, so my premie only had mommy's care from the beginning.

Well that's my story.
