my name is sanjay kumar singh and I am having a girl child of 2 year and 7 months. She is a pre mature
child and born on the seventh month from the expected. As soon she
was born she has been transferred to the nursery for 21 days, so she
was not able to take the birth milk from her mother. Her weight was
850gm when she was born.
Sir, she is now 2.7 year but she is not able to walk. Also she can't
balance her body. She is having a lump of nerves on her right leg.
Earlier we were scared that it was a cancer but doctor said it's only
lump of nerves which will get dissolve as she will grow up.
We had consulted a pediatric for my kid and also asked him for the
problem of her balancing. That doctor told us that my kid has some
problem regarding to her brain development and he has referred us to
neurologist and physiotherapist.
Now, my kid is going through physiotherapy and slight changes has
been noticed. As she is ready to walk after holding my fingers but as I leave my hand from her. She got disbalnced and fell down. Before
physiotherapy she cross her legs while walking but now this problem
has been resolved.
She us naughty and active baby but didn't speak full sentences. Only
didi, mummy, jai ho, papa and so many small words.

Preterm babies especially such very low birth weight babies will invariably have some insult to the brain. She might be having mild developmental delay. Show to a good neurologist.
