    Hey everyone, quick update frm me. We came home wednesday evening after 4 nights on maternity ward, spent a very unsettled nite in my own bed then when the midwife came out this morning he'd lost over 13% body weight!! turns out maternity ward didnt weigh him on day 3 or when discharged as they should! Bloods showed hes de-hydrated so we're spending the nite backt in hospital on childrens ward doing combined formula and breast feeding. His jaundice levels are up but still under threshold so no need to repeat the phototherapy at the moment. He'll be having repeat blood tests in the morning to see how things have improved. Hes feeding well tho so hopefully its just one nite. Fuming that maternity ward didnt pick up on this though!! x

    Hey chick, hope your well. Thats terrible that they didnt weigh him before he left. Im sure he'll be ok, my DD was pre-term at 36 weeks and she was jaundice and lost quite abit of her body weight (cant remember how much excatley) and after a few weeks she came round and shes a healthy 9 year old now. Its good that hes taking his feeds too chick. Hope yous arent in there for long, good luck xxx
