Hi, as you mentioned baby is preterm it's normal to see delay in milestone, you will encounter normal milestone in baby 3 months later as compared to normal baby. You can get normal milestone pattern in healthy baby online for comparison. If any guidance needed can revert back.DR.KP'S CHERUBS CHILD CLINIC. Regards
