The difference between a preemie and a micro preemie is that a premature child is any child born before 37 weeks of gestation. So a normal pregnancy typically lasts 40 weeks. A micro preemie, depending on the source, people define it differently, but typically it is a child born at less than 28 weeks gestation and weighing less than 1,000 grams.
