Will my premature nephew have problems?
Q: My nephew was born within 8 months and weighs 1.8 Kg. Is there any reason why he has such low weight and is he going to have problems in future?
A:The reason for baby's small weight could be multifold, either due to any maternal medical illness or decreased blood supply to the fetus in utero. Most of these babies do well, but some may have problems.
