LO is 5 weeks now, 1 week adjusted. When she was born she weighed 3 lbs 7ozs and had a short 9 day nicu stay as a feeder and grower, she now weighs 7 lbs 3.5 ozs. About a week after she came home i noticed she would bruise pretty easily, the plastic chest piece on her car seat bruises her (when it runs along her arms) is this a normal trait?
Re: 36 weekers- easy bruising
If you're talking purple bruises - not just red marks, then I'd say that's not normal. I have yet to see a bruise on my 36 weeker (who's almost 5 months). In your situation, I'd give the pedi a call to ease my mind.
