Ema is still at her take home weight of 5# 5.2 oz with the splint. My milk is in but she does t seem to want to nurse, just latches and sleeps so I am now using pumped milk and formal after each feeding to boost her weight, energy, and kick the jaundice. That's right, add that to my learning curve! I'm just thankful she is otherwise healthy and happy, my little glow worm.
O at my appointment today I had to take her out of the cars eat in the waiting room bc she was fussing and a man came up to me touched her splint and asked "what did u do to your baby?" I was so mad that he would think that I'd hurt my baby but I jut said she was born with it and ignored him. This is what I was afraid of, but I'll get used to it with time.
(Oh btw btdt barest feeding moms, did u get a low grade fever and chills when your milk came in too?)
