    Callum lost 2lbs in his first three weeks in SCBU. Luckily we were still in hospital from the birth when it was first picked up, but it took them 3 weeks to find a milk he could digest. We went from breastfeeding, normal formula, soya formula and finally pregestimil. It only took him a week to get back to his birthweight once he started on the pregestimil.

    He'll soon pick up now he's on the special milk. Is it pregestimil? if so, best of luck with the nappies :wink:
