Us women should know every single detail of ourselves whether it’s physically or not. Consciousness about yourself will stay you away from any danger.
Premature babies should be taken extra care because they are not well-equipped to deal with our outside world. They still need time to develop and mature fully. They may have to spend weeks or months in a neonatal intensive care unit to support a number of medical issues, including breathing problems and maintaining body heat. Premature babies are vulnerable to infection than normal babies. They are usually iron deficient that’s why doctors prescribe iron drops for preemies to take for at least 4 months.
It is always wise to consult a pediatrician if you think something is wrong with your child.
