Many people think that premature babies are “inborn deficient” and “postnatal development” will not catch up. Professor Sun Jianhua, director of the Department of Neonatology of Shanghai Children’s Medical Center affiliated to Shanghai Jiaotong University, said that in fact, after a period of time, premature babies will appear “accelerated” growth. Most babies can catch up with others by seizing this opportunity. This is called “catch-up growth” in medicine. Most premature babies will complete it within 18 months to 2 years old, especially in the first year after birth. At this time, comprehensive intervention is required.

Under the guidance of the doctor, parents can timely measure whether the baby’s development speed is appropriate by correcting the months of age (the actual months of age minus the months of premature birth, or 2 if the baby is born 2 months earlier).

When you are discharged from the hospital, it is best to have a reexamination once a week or two; If the baby grows steadily, it can be rechecked once or twice a month after birth. When the age of correction reaches 6 months, the assessment of behavioral development should be added to see whether the baby responds to external stimuli, such as sound and moving objects; At 10 months, their crawling and motor coordination abilities were examined to prevent cerebral palsy. After the age of 1 year, they were reexamined every 3 months, mainly to observe language development and motor development; After the age of 2 years, it can be rechecked every half a year.
