Re: What health issues does your LO face from being 'undercooked'?

Our DS was actually 36 wks 4 days and over 7 lbs so we were not anticipating all the problems he had. he was on CPAP for 2 days but continued to deteriorate so he was put on a high frequency occilator ventilator. He was diagnosed with PPHN (persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn) at 3 days old. This is where his heart didn't swith over from the fetal process so it wasn't pumping blood to his lungs to oxygenate the body. Thankfully he responded to interventions and his heart transitioned. He was on the vent for 17 days and in the NICU for a little over a month. So far, we've delt with reflux and he also weezes / seems to have some breathing issues but like one PP, hasnt officially been diagnosed with asthma either.
