In brief: Depends

Some full term babies stay in the nicu for just a few hours or just one night while the medical problem resolves itself.
Very premature babies usually stay in the nicu until the expected due date. Some very sick babies, both term and pre-term, may stay in the nicu longer than their expected due date because of complications or lengthy treatment.
