    Cassie- a lot of prems are tummy sleepers cause if the time spent in humidity cribs nested.

    My 3 slept on their tummies from an early age.

    If you feel cumfy with him sleeping on his tummy, I say go for it.

    He could have reflux which may be why he doesnt like being on his back. A LOT of bubs dont like tummy time untill they can move, mine included.

    Default what should i expect with a little premmie?

    Hi all, i am a foster carer and i have tentatively accepted a placement of an aboriginal baby boy who was born last week weighing 1685grams, he will be released from hospital at 2200grams if all goes well and he will have him from then. I have not cared for such a tiny baby before and i'm a bit nervous about what to expect...i assume i will get some info on his specific needs when i get him but i would love to hear from any of you guys who have been there with such a teeny one. His mother was induced approx 6 weeks early as he was failing to thrive. Poor bubba got a double whammy in the size stakes!

    NICU/SCN should send him home with what some of us like to call 'instructions'.

    Either 3 or 4 hourly feeds, first few weeks he'll feed like clock work. Than after a while he may start to space feeds out during the night but in saying that due to his size he may play catch up & try to gain weight, he may also go the other way & struggle to gain weight cause of his size.

    Average 34weeker is 2kg at birth providing their complication free, he didnt do to bad weight wise.

    Treat him as you would any other baby, he's the same just happens to be on the smaller side.

    There is also actual age (from DOB) & corrected age (from EDD), for all milestones you need to use his corrected age.

    One thing i learnt was, dont sweat the small stuff.

    Hope that helps.

    BTW, your an awesome person for welcoming a prem into your home. Its hard work but so worth it .
