My daughter was born at 28 weeks too. She is now perfectly healthy at almost 8 mo.Anyways as far as the smell it is because she probably hasn't had a proper bath yet. I am also sure they still have the isolette humidified, right? My daughter had her stinky moments too and it was from not being bathed. She was also on cpap for a long time and that doesnt help the smell because of all of the stuff around the face and she had a beanie on all of the time so her head smelled. They can at least wipe her down with wipes or something. One of my nicu nurses used to do a mini bath right in her isolette with wipes and such.
