Tell me I’m doing it right?
Tigerboy is feeding on demand. Sometimes it feels like he’s feeding round the clock. I do sometimes distract him – pop him in the wrap and go out for a walk for example, but mainly when he wants food he gets it.
He made his birth weight back in 5 days, and put on nearly 9 oz in the next week. However since then he’s only put on another 6 oz, making a pound gain since birth. And the jaundice, which disappeared entirely after a day in a sunny conservatory is today back with a vengeance. So today’s health visitor, after dispensing the third oral vitamin k dose, made us a hospital appt for this afternoon.
Aaargh. Tigerboy seems determined to do things differently. First early baby. First yellow baby. And now first baby with hospital referral. Tell me it’s all ok?
