When did your preemie smile?

My lo was born 6 weeks early. He is 10 weeks 2 days but 4 weeks adjusted and isn't smiling yet. When did your lo smile?   Thanks!!

Re: When did your preemie smile?

  • 5 weeks early here and right around 11 weeks, so 6 weeks adjusted.  Smiling and reaching for objects were the 2 milestones that really fell within the adjusted age range, so far most other stuff he has kept up with kids his actual age.

    2 years, 2 surgeries, 2 clomid fails, 2 IUIs, 1 loss, IVF #1 - 10/25/10 = BFP!, DS is now 3.5yrs!
    TTC #2 - 6/12 surgery #3, FET #1 & 1.2 = BFN, 12/2012 FET #2 = BFP! DD is 1.5 yrs!
    Surprise! 12/16/14 BFP, loss #2 12/31/14

  • My son was 9 weeks early and didn't start really smiling purposely until he was almost 4 months actual, 2 months adjusted.  He is now just starting to grab toys at 4.5 months old, 2.5 months adjusted.

  • My LO was 5.5 weeks early and really I think she just started to smile last week. So at 10 weeks old.



  • He was 9 weeks early.  We saw our first smile at 2 months adjusted/4 actual.  It was a LONG wait.
