Hey Waiting, hoping all goes well with Caleb's feeding. Keep us posted x

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.

Awesome news Waiting. I'm glad he is gaining weight and strength. How are you feeling? It's lovely to hear that your dd is coping well too

Im doing well, tired and still sore "down there" but coping which is a good sign! I have to say, so far despite all the feeding issues I feel more relaxed this time than I ever was with DD. Fx it stays that way!!

Glad things are looking up waiting. Hope he continues to thrive.
