Re: Birth weight vs coming home weight?

My twins were born at 32 weeks. NICU stay was 28 days for DD, 3 months for DS (though he was sent home twice in that time, and had to go back.)


At birth DD was 3lbs 2oz; a bit less than 5lbs at discharge
At birth DS was 3lbs 7oz; around 5lbs at initial discharge after 28 days

The criteria for them was that they could regulate their body temps, take all feedings by mouth, and have no apnea/desaturation episodes. There was no specific weight goal.

~9.5 months out (so 7.5 corrected age) DD weighs 16lb .5oz, and DS weighs 14lb 6oz
