    Default Newbie IUGR baby and scared x

    Hello

    I am new here and from the UK. My darling daughter is 11 months old and was born at 35 weeks at 4lb 6oz due to IUGR. Whilst mentally she seems fine, her development physically is quite severely delayed, she is just starting to roll and has quite good head control. I am wondering whether development delay is normal with these babies. She spent her first six months classed as failure to thrive due a floppy larynx which has now been operated on and she is gaining weight.

    Has anyone else experienced development delay with their IUGR bub???

    My DS was IUGR and failure to thrive and his first year was such a scary time. He's always been slow to grow and physically small, but luckily his development hasn't been delayed. Are you seeing a paediatrician?

    I have just found this thread.

    My nearly 1 year old was born at 37 weeks with IGUR aswell. She is under developed does not crawl & has only just starting sitting on her own & pulling herself up to furniture.

    She is currently seeing a chiropactor for under developed muscles & reflexes. We have a family history of a serious condition & we are on the wait list to see a paediatrician but can not get in until October

    I don't know if it is because she is still small (7.6kg ATM) or because of the family history. People that know us but are not close did not believe me when I say that she is turning one this month (August).

    Good Luck OP hope you get some answers soon.
