Just took Ella to have an ultrasound on her hips, her left hip is a worry. Looks like she has hip dysplasia, need to have the ultrasound redone in another six weeks. Hopefully it repairs itself, if not she may need a cast! What a nightmare that would be poor little girl.

I don't want to jinx myself or make anyone upset with me..
the past week Ella has only woken once during the night. I have woken heaps cause I'm worried about her.
Last night we fed at 9.30pm and she stirred at 4.30am so i went to feed her. She didn't wake up to feed.. so i kinda dream fed her - she didn't want much and it took an hour cause i kept trying to get milk into her!!!!
I put her back down and she woke again at 7.30am.. again for a small feed.
I think she would have gone all night!
Im worried cause her feeds are so small and she still is just sitting on 3kg's at 9 weeks.
I want her to wake at night (strange to say, i know!!!) and her feeds are now 3 or 4 hourly during the day.
My paed said that I should just let her go till she is hungry as her feeds are so small maybe it will make her feeds a bit bigger and longer and he said not to wake her at night.
she is now sitting just below the 3rd percentile on the chart.. so at least her adjusted age she is doing ok.
everyone thinks she is still a newborn when they see her! hee hee so tiny!
she is just fitting into 0000 size now.. so thats a win for me!
any tips to get her to eat????

Adden I assume you don't change her at 4.30? Maybe I shouldn't change her, Ella has been sleeping until 4am as well. After changing her, feeding her and settling it takes me 1.5 - 2 hrs before I'm back in bed. Once Ella is awake she doesn't want to sleep again. I may try to dream feed her tonight and see what happens.

Tricky situation adden, 3rd percentile requires monitoring I guess. I've been weighing Jaan myself weekly at the mch centre just so I know what's going on- he doesn't seem to eat much either but he wasn't little like your pumpkin. Can you dream feed her at 11pm or just before you go to bed? Sounds like she needs waking until she gets a bit bigger..

Beta - that's what I thought, but paed said if she's not feeding well then wait till she is hungry especially at night as sleep is good for both of us (she's not much of a sleeper during the day at the moment)
I'm weighing her every thursday, so will see how she gains this week I guess.
I feed her at 9.30 every night, so that's her late feed before the big stretch.. If she's not awake it's hard!!
She's a great sleeper and I'm so thankful for that as my son was awful !!!
