Premature babies do take a little more time to go. Don't compare her with other babies. Give her time and care. She will bloom. She needs extra love and attention. Weight Gain and Growth for Premature Babies: Facts You Must Know

Hi Razia, what was her birth weight?

Satyam Sharma

She has almost doubled her birth weight then. You need to ensure you feed her after every 2 hours or on demand which ever is earlier..
I followed a regime during early days I fed my daughter as soon as she passed urine..
So keep feeding her weight will increase, massage her regularly.. in earlier days I massagedy daughter 4 times a day.. now I do thrice a day.
Are you giving your bm?

Razia Tin

Yes I feed her every 2hrs,bm+fm

Satyam Sharma

Feed every 2 hrs or earlier, massage 4 times and bathe once or twice (as per the weather of your city) follow this regime you will see a good growth
