How long did your LO stay in the hospital? How far along were you when you gave birth?

My LO was a 35 weekend and had a little over a week in the nicu as a feeding/growing baby. No oxygen and just a few days of tube feeds through his nose.

C was a 33 weeker and spent 2 weeks in the NICU (he had a lot of breathing issues at first, then jaundice and an infection, and had no latch for the first week, but rallied enough to come home before his due date). I pumped and put him to breast repeatedly while he was in the NICU and he eventually got the hang of BF.

35 weeks. He stayed for 13 days. I pumped while he was in the hospital but put him to breast as much as I could. We are 13 months out and still nursing strong. He was born with some scary breathing issues and had trouble keeping his body temp.

My daughter was born at 35 weeks, and spent less than a week in the hospital, partly because of jaundice (no NICU though).

My son was born at 34+3 and spent 22 days in the NICU to feed/grow. He was even born 6lb 11oz. He only had one day of light therapy for jaundice but really had a hard time meeting the requirements of getting everything by mouth and not tube feeds.

Mine was 36W exactly and 4 lbs 6 oz. We were in the NICU for 10 days, mainly to make sure she was gaining weight and keeping her body temperature regulated.

32w, 2 months initially.
A good rule of thumb is that the baby will probably be in the NICU until they reach term (36-40w)

LO was 35 + 2, and had a 2 week stay in the NICU to gain weight. He was only 3 lbs 14 oz when born, and I think around 4 lbs 3 oz when we left.

My 31 +1 weeker was in the NICU a little over two weeks. Now he's a healthy, happy and total milestone hitting 15 month old

DS was exactly 36 weeks, so not quite what you're asking, and spent 7 days in the NICU. He had a CPAP to help him with his breathing for a little and had jaundice and temperature issues.

Not LO, but I was born at 34 weeks and had no NICU time. Went home after the 4-5 days that was a normal hospital stay then.

My son was born at 27 weeks 4 days. We spent 76 days in the NICU which put him at the equivalent of 38 weeks.

This might be irrelevant since it was so long ago but my son was born at 35 weeks, no NICU time, we went home after 2 days. We did have to do tube feeding which is normal for 35 weekers.

I'm not sure if this is relevant, but I was born at 34 weeks at 5lbs- ish, and went home when my mom did- no NICU time.
