Why Considering Adjusted Age Is Important for Premature Babies' Milestones

Reading now: 580

I want to share something important about prematurity that a lot of people do not realize. Early birth does not fast-track a baby’s brain development.

It doesn’t fast-track anything for that matter. If anything, it can slow down development. Premature babies are given two different ages.

They have an actual age based on the day they were born, and they also have an adjusted age based on when they would have been full-term.
