How long would a baby born at 30 weeks have to stay in the NICU
Doctors say that on average a premature baby needs to stay in the NICU until their due date. So a 30 week premature baby needs to stay in the NICU for approximately 9 weeks. Some babies will be in shorter and some longer.
My third baby was born at 30 weeks and she spent 45 days in the NICU. She got out sooner than expected but she required a lot of medical care when she came home.
