They checked his levels today after him being on the bili bed all afternoon and night. They had gone down just one point to 17 and he's gained 2.5oz since yesterday. The doctor seemed pleased and decided they'll meet up on Saturday to check him out again after he spends Friday on the bed. His energy has been good and there's no sign of fever or anything so we're all hopeful. My sister was also able to finally get some sleep last night so she's a little less stressed. Thank you for all the advice. I will update again after his Saturday check.
So my sister got him checked out this morning. His bilirubin levels have only gone down to 16 and he's dropped an ounce as well. We also found out the doctor ordered a biliblanket for them but for some reason the company or hospital or whatever sent the table. My sister is stressing again, considering formula, and is trying to find somewhere she can rent the blanket. Baby has been crying constantly and not nursing as well because he hates the table and just wants to be held. It just doesn't feel like it's going well. Doctor said he has to be on it the rest of the weekend and check him again on Monday.
