Re: New Mom - 3 Day Old!
Wow, this really is a great community.Thank you everyone for the supportive messages.
When we were dischanged his billirubin was 9.4 (its written somewhere). He looks less yellow than even at discharge today. We have the first pediatrician appt. tomorrow morning (Day 5). Today we have a lactation counselor who may offer some help. It is good to know that sleepiness will pass (although I imagine it comes with more difficult fussiness!!?). We are persevering with the syrine and finger sucking... he doesn't get the syringe unless he sucks the finger simultaneously. Hopefully that prevents him from being lazy once he wakes up.
