The incidence of motor, cognitive, and language delay among children who were born preterm (< 32 weeks gestation) is high. Estimated gestational age at birth appears to influence the timing of discharge, with infants born earlier being discharged later after accounting for the degree of prematurity. Postmenstrual age at discharge appears to be related to motor outcome in early childhood, shedding light on the high-risk nature of this population of infants still hospitalized after their due date.
