The baby seems to be fit for discharge as per the information given by you. If mother is comfortable in giving feeds to the baby and baby is showing steady weight gain over 3-5 days, baby can be discharged home at this weight and gestation. Discuss with the neonatal team taking care of your baby and based on their decision, discharge can be planned.
