    Thought id pop in quickly and update, We are doing well. The hospital wanted me to stay in another night but the Ob said it was up to me, and I decided I would be more comfortable at home.

    Went to see the middy today to have C weighed. He had dropped from 3350g to 3030g at discharge. Weigh in today showed he has FINALLY put some weight back on - 100g in 2 days which is double what he needed (needs average 25g per day) so that was a relief so we dont have to be re-admitted. His jaundice appears to be clearing too.

    The middy watched me do a feed and said that though he isnt tongue tied, he doesnt yet have the muscle tone/strength in his mouth to bring his tongue forward, or suck very well - hence why he is struggling to latch. So hopefully it is just a matter of time and a bit more strength behind him and development and he will get the hang of it.. So I just have to continue what Im doing for now and fingers crossed the feeds will improve. I have noticed his sucking on my finger has gotten stronger over the last 24 hours which is awesome. They have said basically to treat him like a prem for a couple of weeks - though he is classified as "full term" and a good size at birth, he is still 3 weeks early so he has a sucking reflex but it is weak.

    DD is doing well and loves being a big sister. I think she is in the "honeymoon period" at the moment, Im expecting some fall-out down the track though! She was very excited to go to daycare today and take a pic of C in to show everyone so that was cute.
