My sister in law had her ds Monday, she wasn't due until February 14th- her water broke. He's doing well, his blood sugar dipped and there was a slight infection so he was on an iv but that's all cleared up. Well now he's jaundiced so they're supplementing his feeding with formula to get the jaundiced cleared up so that hopefully he can go home tomorrow. I told my mom I wouldn't want them doing formula for fear of messing up her supply this early. But apparently the nurse practitioner has been practicing for 38 years and really know her stuff. (that was her response). I realize I'm not an expert, so maybe they do have to give him formula it just seems strange to me. I'm also irritated with my mom that she said they "had" to do it. She ebf'd 8 kids. Of course, she's also not supportive of my desire to tandem nurse when the baby gets here. Maybe I'm just being hormonal and this is perfectly normal. Lol I just needed to vent a bit.
