It depends on how premature and if there are any problems/complications due to this...

Usually the baby needs to be ale to breathe and eat on its own. With or without a feeding tube...they need to be able to have a good sucking reflex. Most of the time the babies stay in until their due date if they are severely premature..like before 33 weeks. After that the babies lungs are usually well enough that they only have to be in there for a few days or even go home with mom.

My oldest daughter was born at 31 weeks and spent 21 days in the hospital. They have to be able to breathe on their own, bottle or nipple feed, maintain body temp. and weigh over 4 lbs. and not be losing weight.
