Between the 7th and 8th month

 
Between the 7th and 8th month

Babies born between the 7 and 8th month are more 'robust' and can breathe unaided, but they might still have respiratory problems. Some will be able to take breast milk and some won't yet.

They are cared for in a neo-natal or Special Baby Care Unit.
