Hi KoolBreeze:

Having been a preemie myself (2lbs 4 oz and 10 weeks early) and my best friend's baby having been early (6 weeks and 4lbs) I can say with almost certainty if he is 5 lbs and has no breathing issues, they will more than likely schedule a car seat test (you will need to bring the seat to the hospital and they will hook him up for a while--anywhere from 30 min to 2 hours--to make sure he is not going to stop breathing or have any type of difficulty) and he will be discharged hopefully fairly quickly!

He is a gorgeous baby and very big for a prem! Congrats!

Hey Congratulations Carmell!! He's a beauty--and he doesn't even look like a preemie!!

(And I know you're not feeling too good either, Hon...but you know, after the happy crew you have already, that it's gonna get a bit better every day!!)

I'm so thankful you're both okay, and that the wee one will be home soon!! I know the papa is bursting with pride about his boy!!

What a blessing to have a sweet little baby boy! (I had 3)

I'll be praying for both of you, as well as your family. Get some rest while you can, and don't forget to breathe!
