Looking at these pictures of baby Bunny in hospital a year ago and at her first birthday party, it’s hard to believe she’s the same girl. The 1-year-old is the picture of health as she bounces on her mum’s knee in the picture below.
But when she was born 6 weeks premature in August last year weighing just 5lb 9oz, Bunny had to spend 3 weeks in hospital after experiencing breathing difficulties.
The mum-of-5 shared the pictures and said Bunny had “changed into a strong cheeky little girl” in the year since she was born. Other mums who had premature babies couldn’t wait to share their own stories.
“Brings back memories, my son was born at 22 weeks, weighed 2lb 9oz and is now 14 years old,” one mum commented. “I had twin girls born prematurely at 30 weeks and they are now 15 years old….prem babies are little fighters!” another added.
“Love all these success stories of these little warriors my princess was born 3 months prem and is doing amazingly well love it,” another wrote.
