Re: How long to regain weight?
He is such a sickly baby ugh. They also checked his weight and its down again. They put silver nitrate on his cord area to cauterize it, the redness seems better this AM to me. His jaundice seems gone now too that is good.
We are still working hard to breastfeed, he latches on great but doesn't stimulate the breast well or have the energy to get a full feeding. I'm finishing him off with mostly BM some formula.
At this point we need to get him better or he will end up back in the hospital. I am not sure if he will need to be a combination feeder or if my supply will pick up when he's nursing better. I just don't have the time to around the clock pump with my other son here as well. I'm trying, I really am!
My IBCLC told me my milk came in but not a full supply since my baby isn't nursing great. She said it could go either way,
I hate having to post on here these things I feel so ashamed. But it's the truth of my experience and hopefully someone else can learn from it too.
Colby is beautiful otherwise. He is doing great co-sleeping and is super cuddly. He loves the RS too!! Logan isn't sure about the big brother thing yet he won't go near him. Hee hee.... but I suppose it's better than hitting him.
