There are more than 300,000 infants born between 34 and 37 weeks’ gestation each year in the United States. Even though these late preterm infants are born just a few weeks early, they often behave more like a preterm infant than a term infant.

This unique comprehensive book offers families of late preterm infants a much needed resource. It contains:
1. A discussion about the hospital environment, care providers, and monitoring that may be needed;
2. A detailed account of medical issues that late preterm infants and their parents might encounter during their baby’s hospital stay;
3. Pictures that help the reader have a clearer understanding of these medical issues; and
4. A dictionary with an explanation of commonly used medical terms.
