Why are premature babies so skinny?

It's because they are underweight. Premature babies are smaller than full term babies and are more fraigile. That is why preemies have to stay in the hospital depending on their size and weight because they need to gain more weight until they are at least five lbs so they are less fraile. A very skinny baby with ribs showing is not a healthy weight for a newborn baby so weight gain is nessisary for undeweight or preemie babies.

How long would a 32 week premature baby stay in the hospital?

You really need to think about what you want to say when you ask a question: A 32 week premature baby would be an embryo. IF you meant a baby born at 32 weeks (which is technically an EIGHT WEEK premature baby) then you should have said that. Also, a due date is an approximation, you can deliver a full term baby two weeks before or after. So, now you are talking about a 6 week premature baby. How long it stays in the hospital depends completely upon that baby's condition. If it is over 5lbs with no lung problems I hope that your nursery is ready.
