How much worse is this scenario when premature infants are concerned?
Some newborns could likely fit premature sizes far better than newborn apparel, but preemie sizes are very difficult to find.
What's even more frustrating regarding the hunt for micro preemie sizes is that most parents don't plan ahead for premature infants.
Micro preemie sizes are created for the smallest of premature infants.
Premature menopause is another health issue that women who smoke may face due to this habit.
Over time, the damage to caused by the sun accumulates and may lead to premature aging and skin cancer.
This is known as premature menopause and is classified as any time before the age of 45.
It is estimated that approximately 15 percent of the female population experience premature menopause.

Other complications may include collapsed lungs, premature aging of the skin on the hands and feet, and ruptured arteries and veins.
The antacids will cause premature rupture of the enteric coating.
Premature birth is the constant threat of multiple gestation, and the primary threat of prematurity is related to lung development.
Premature infants lack a substance, called surfactant, that permits their lungs to expand and breathe normally.
It is more beneficial if the steroid can be given twice in a 48 hour period; however, if there is not time for this, surfactant has been developed that can be administered into the lungs of a premature infant to facilitate breathing.
An additional problem with the premature infant involves the lack of body fat.
Since premature infants do not have this fat, they use energy they cannot afford to stay warm.
Health consequences range from a higher risk of premature death to chronic conditions that reduce a person's quality of life.

The more premature a baby is born, the greater is the likelihood of apnea.
Premature babies are also at higher risk for "late apnea," which occurs when the infant is older than six weeks.
Apnea usually occurs during sleep and is primarily a disorder of premature infants.
Usually a premature baby in an incubator is continually monitored, and hospital staff can easily detect apnea.
Parents of premature babies need to be apprised of the possibility of apnea and should be instructed on how to resuscitate their infant if it occurs.
Premature babies who are still in the hospital under neonatal care are monitored by machines that will alert staff when a baby stops breathing.
If apnea is diagnosed, it will probably recur, but most premature babies outgrow the condition by the time they reach their normal due date.
Patent ductus arteriosus is common in premature babies, but rare in full-term babies.
During pregnancy, a folic acid deficiency may lead to preeclampsia, premature birth, and increased bleeding after birth.
At highest risk are boys, premature infants, infants living in urban locations, babies who have not been breastfed, and babies with chronic pulmonary, cardiac, or immune conditions.
Twenty-five percent of premature infants born before 28 weeks are breech.
The mother is given medication to relax the uterus, minimize discomfort, and prevent premature contractions.
The exception to this is premature babies.
C-section is generally the delivery mode of choice for premature babies due to the other risks these infants face (such as lung immaturity).
Advances in the medical care of premature infants since the 1980s have dramatically increased the rate of survival of these fragile newborns.
First, premature babies are at higher risk for various CP-associated medical complications, such as intracerebral hemorrhage, infection, and difficulty in breathing, to name a few.
Second, the onset of premature labor may be induced, in part, by complications that have already caused neurologic damage in the fetus.
The tendency toward premature delivery runs in families, but genetic mechanisms are not fully clear.
As the number of fetuses in a pregnancy increases, the risks for abnormal development and premature delivery also increase.
Other possible causes include abnormal development of the brain, prenatal factors that directly or indirectly damage neurons in the developing brain, premature birth, and brain injuries that occur in the first few years of life.
CP related to premature birth and multiple births is somewhat different and considered separately.
Likewise, any substance that increases the risk for premature delivery and low birth weight, such as alcohol, tobacco, or cocaine, among others, might indirectly increase the risk for CP.
Structural abnormalities of the placenta, premature detachment of the placenta from the uterine wall (abruption), and placental infections (chorioamnionitis) are thought to pose some risk for CP.
Some studies show that premature schooling may potentially slow or reduce a child's overall development by reducing valuable play time.

There are additional benefits that can be derived from infant massage to elicit positive outcomes for premature infants and disadvantaged mothers.
Recent research demonstrates benefits for premature infants, children with asthma, diabetes, and certain skin disorders.
This is especially true for premature babies.
Many of the studies are related to the benefits of massage and touch for premature infants and others born with such risk factors as drug dependence or cerebral palsy.
Unusual abdominal pain and/or cramping may indicate the onset of premature labor.
Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a serious bacterial infection in the intestine, primarily affecting sick or premature newborn infants.
Not only is the immature digestive tract less able to protect itself, but premature infants are subjected to many stresses on the body in their attempt to survive.
In very small or sick premature infants, the risk for necrotizing enterocolitis may be diminished by beginning parenteral nutrition and delaying enteral feedings for several days to weeks.
Males are more than seven times more likely to have an inguinal hernia than females, and premature infants are more likely than full term infants to have inguinal hernias and to have incarcerated hernias.
Infants born before 37 weeks gestation are considered premature and may be at risk for complications.

It is not unusual for premature infants to be placed in heat-controlled units (incubators) to maintain their temperature.
Many premature infants require time and support with breathing and feeding until they mature enough to breathe and eat unassisted.
Another method, called kangaroo care, entails placing a medically stable, diaper-clad premature infant on a parent's chest for periods of time so that the parent and child are touching skin-to-skin.
If a premature infant is unable to nurse at the breast or drink from a bottle, fluids and nutrients may be administered intravenously or with a tube in the nose or mouth that empties into the stomach (called gavage feeding).
Advances in medical care have made it possible for many premature infants to survive and develop normally.
Minor disabilities like learning problems, poor coordination, or short attention span may be the result of premature birth but can be overcome with early intervention.
The risks of serious long-term complications depend on many factors, including how premature the infant was at birth, the weight at birth, and the presence or absence of breathing problems.
Some of the risks and complications of premature delivery can be reduced if the mother receives good prenatal care, follows a healthy diet, avoids alcohol or drug consumption, and refrains from cigarette smoking.
In some cases of premature labor, the mother may be placed on bed rest or given drugs that can stop labor contractions for days or weeks, giving the developing infant more time to develop before delivery.
The availability of a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), a special hospital unit equipped and trained to deal with premature infants, can also increase an infant's chances of survival.
A new medication may help to prevent spontaneous premature births.
Poor nutrition during pregnancy may lead to an increased risk of premature delivery.

Some include family breakdown, irresponsible fatherhood or motherhood, premature motherhood, birth out of wedlock, or the death of one or both parents.
Other studies indicate that even newborn and premature infants who have constant pain will reach adulthood with greater sensitivity to pain and lower tolerance of stress.
This infection can cause premature rupture of the membranes and early labor.
Both infections can cause premature birth, and the bacteria can be transferred to the infant in the uterus or during delivery.
Up to 50 percent of infants born to mothers with syphilis are premature or stillborn or die shortly after birth.
Chlamydia: Without treatment, the most serious consequences of chlamydial infection are related to complications of premature delivery.

Premature infants treated with daily massage therapy gain more weight and have shorter hospital stays than infants who are not massaged.
Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) of the newborn, also known as infant RDS, is an acute lung disease present at birth, which usually affects premature babies.
RDS nearly always occurs in premature infants, and the more premature the birth, the greater is the chance that RDS will develop.
Tiny, very premature infants may not even have signs of trouble breathing.
When a premature infant has obvious trouble breathing at birth or within a few hours of birth, RDS is an obvious possibility.
If premature birth is expected, or there is some condition that calls for delivery as soon as possible, the amount of surfactant in the amniotic fluid will indicate how well the lungs have matured.
If a very premature infant is born without symptoms of RDS, it may be wise to deliver surfactant to its lungs.
