NEW YORK Reuters Health - Babies born extremely early have much better survival odds now than in years past — but boys seem to be lagging behind girls, a new study finds. Australian researchers found that of more than 2, infants born very preterm — in the 28th week of pregnancy or earlier — boys had a somewhat lower survival rate and were more likely to have long-term neurological problems like blindness, deafness or cerebral palsy. Those problems — including blindness, deafness, cerebral palsy and mental retardation — affected nearly 20 percent of boys, versus 12 percent of girls.
Border Patrol facility in Texas came under new scrutiny Saturday after a teenage mother was found there with a premature baby. Immigrant advocates expected the facility in the U.

Experts estimate some micro-preemies born at weeks gestation may take years to catch up. Much depends on their health at birth and since that time, any medical challenges, and their care and wellbeing at home.

FRIDAY, July 12, HealthDay News -- Preemie babies face a host of potential lifelong health problems, but a new analysis suggests the cards of love might also be stacked against them. Previous studies have found that premature babies -- especially the tiniest ones -- face some long-term difficulties. The issues go beyond physical health: As preemies get older they tend to lag behind their peers in school and, later, professionally. And they may be at higher risk of anxiety or certain other mental health disorders.
