5 Month Update

Calvin turned 5 months last week or 3 months corrected age. For preemies, I’ve read that we should use corrected age rather than actual age to gauge milestones.

This is what he is able to do now

  • Lifts head up 90 degrees
  • Tracks moving objects

He hasn’t been putting on weight well though. At our last checkup, his weight gain was about 300g/ month though his height increased by 3cm. Recently, his appetite is slightly better than before – slightly seems to be only 3% more than before so that’s probably still too little. I’ve been resorting to separating the foremilk and hindmilk and then siphoning out the fatty parts of the excess milk to make extra creamy milk. Oops he’s awake. Will continue again next time.
