Help for a friend: newborn blood sugar
My friend who just had the baby is told she cant go home because her son's blood sugar is low. Anyone have experience with this. Apparently the nurse doesnt even know what to do. Nice! :confused:
From what I've read it's normal to drop then rise again, and since he's full term, healthy, normal weight, it shouldnt have even been tested because it's deceiving. I just hope they dont force formula on her as she is trying breastfeeding. She says he's breastfed alot and she does have colostrum leaking out.
I told her it probably acutally isnt even an issue and they made it one by doing an unnecessary blood test.
Poor thing just wants to go home!!!!
