What a weekend ! We’re all three thankful that that’s done with.
It started on Wednesday when Michael had a routine check-up … it seemed he wasn’t gaining weight (which is bad !) … So, off to Holles St. hospital with him for a complete check-up, and they decided he wasn’t getting enough feeding (seems it happens frequently with breast-fed babies).
To make a long story short, he was admitted on Wednesday evening for ‘fattening-up’, which is where they double-feed the babies to help them gain weight … he did well, and was making great progress, so on Saturday we got to take him home again. (Not before we’d both had some much-needed rest!)
The downside to this ‘fattening-up’ process is that he’s now supplementing his draught supply with a full 4oz feed of formula every 3 hours or so … he’s gaining weight alright … but in the process he’s making his daddy’s hair a little grayer
