Quoting **_Tabitha_**:" My first was a 33 weeker. Born 6lbs 4oz. He did really well, only had a 2 week NICU stay. He didn't start ... [snip!] ... its easier said than done. Its gunna feel like everything happens over night. He will get it!! Good luck and best of wishes!"
I agree.. My Son was born at 31 weeks, weighed 4lbs 0oz and he had some problems but not many.. It seems to me that he did everything quickly but of course he didnt.. He started walking at a little over a year. Hes now 2 and doing wonderful.. As long as you keep encouraging him then he will get it and when he does it is going to be the best feeling ever.. it will be a bittersweet moment because he will suddenly go from needing you for EVERYTHING to only needing you for some things. But its part of being a parent..
