Quoting In memory.....:" what do u mean judged a preemie? a term baby can have medical problems doesnt make it a preemie just because he/she went nicu."
Because of his problems, they judged him premature and called him a preemie. The pediatricians in charge of the NICU. He was to be treated as a preemie for his medical care, even after he got out of the hospital.
It was just their way of noting his lung problems and making sure I told his pediatrician and any follow-up doctors once he got out of the hospital, I guess. But he was considered premature, even though by date he was just early term.
