32 Prem Baby

Please tell me what the chances are of a 32 week baby surviving without future complications

Premature infants who reach this stage have an excellent chance of survival and usually have no complications with modern neonatal care.

My son was born at 30 weeks. He was at the neonatal for 6 weeks, mainly because he couldnt breath on his own. He is 13 months now. He is pulling to stand up and cruz with furnishers. Never experience any problems with his health.

My baby was born at 32 1/2 weeks, she was breathing on her own but this may have been due to the fact that my waters had broken at 28 weeks (apparently the stress helps to mature the lungs). The big thing with her, and why she was is neonatal for 4 weeks was because she had to learn to suck. The only thing for me was that she was never able to latch, so I couldn''t breastfeed her.
