Sorry to post another thread everyone, but I'm a little worried. Here is what's going on, we left the hospital this past Monday morning. My son has Jaundice, but the levels weren't too bad so they let us leave. We had a doctor appt set up for Wednesday, however on Tuesday he looked much more yellow so we go an appt for that day. Of course they pricked his foot. We got the call at 8pm that night his level was 14. We were told to return the following(Weds) morning. We did, and he got his foot pricked again, twice. Last night he was having some trouble breathing(little boogies & meconium) so we took him to the hospital. While we were waiting to see the doctor he was hungry but they didn't want him to nurse until after he was seen, so we gave him a nook for the first time. They got his nose clear but last night was a very bad night for him; wouldn't sleep, didn't really want to nurse and the same holds true today regarding nursing. It's like he doesn't want to really latch on anymore. He will latch for a few minutes but then it's like he gets bored or doesn't want any milk and just quits. I'm afraid I ruined him for nursing.
I'm so sorry for writing a novel here, I just wanted to provide some clarity to the situation. Is this common? Did the 10 minutes with a nook give him nipple confusion? Any tips or suggestions? Thanks a million for all of your help. It's greatly appreciated.
