I was due Nov 17th and delivered at 39 weeks on November 10th.. if your due date on here is correct, theres no way you were 37 weeks..

I had a 34 weeker that weighed 4 lbs, 5 oz. We did alot of swaddling, since she couldn't hold her own body temp well, we also wore her all the time. For warmth and because she was so fragile we were afraid to lay her down.

Mine were 5lb 11oz & 7lb 4oz, I handle them both the same way..
he's a baby...whether he's 5lbs or 10lbs, they need to be handled the same way, don't they? :roll:

lol just love your little one. Don't be afraid!! My son was 5 lbs 13 oz dropped to 5lbs 6oz. Born at 37 weeks. We did keep him swaddled a lot to keep his body temp steady but other than that there was nothing different from any other newborn.
