Hello,

I have a premature son who is now 8 months. He still looks like a 3 or 4 month old and as a concerned Mum, I can't help but wonder if he is developing well. His paediatrician hasn't made any major comments other than the fact that he is smaller than most babies and needs to catch up. I breastfeed my son and he seems to eat well but it seems to me that he likes to snack. He doesn't normally eat until he is full and I don't know if there is anything I could do to help him with this problem to possibly increase his feeding intake. Also, is there any thing I can do to help make sure my son is reaching all of his milestones as a premature baby? I know he will need plenty of time to catch up to other children but I just want to make sure I am being the best Mum I can be.
