Loosing weight and a quick question about bilirubin levels??

 Well we have began the process of going home and they have done all the test on Laylah. I am completly surprised, with the way this girl eats, at the weight she has lost. She is as small as Xavier was when we left the hospital weighing 6 lbs 13 oz now! She has lost 12 oz....WOW!!!

I am not concerned about that really b/c I understand that is common. I am curious about her bilirubin levels. The nurse said it was 9. something...I think 9.8 but I am not positive about that. I have to ask again. Anyway how bad is that....I can't remember from my boys weither that was high or not???

9 is GREAT! but they need to watch it and watch for her turning yellow bc the levels usually rise a few days after birth.

My son got up to 25!  Needless to say he had to stay in the hospital.  Levels usually decrease after the 3rd day
