Pre-mature baby and leaps


#1

Hi,

I have a question. My baby boy was born 4 weeks prematurely and is currently in leap 2 if take his date of birth into account.

So my question, do we calculate the leaps according to his date of birth or should we actually look at the original due date? So if i look at the original due date he should actually be in leap 1.

Thanks.

Hi Tammy,

I can’t remember where it is, but somewhere it says to use your baby’s due date, rather than date of birth.

I had the same question with my little girl who was also 4 weeks early. She’s 1 now and the leaps have matched up well with what she is doing based on her due date.

All the best
