So i thought I had better update thanks to Sticky bean for reminding me lol
My baby girl was born via a planned C section on the 23rd June at 9:40 am.
Once delivered we found out she has a cleft in her soft palate that will prevent her from breastfeeding and feeding from a normal bottle, i am expressing every 3hrs and to ping up with formula, when I had my c section the anesthesiologist put morphine in my spinal which made bub very sleepy and unable to feed for the first 2 days and by the time that wore off the jaundice had kicked in and she was constantly asleep only getting 20ml per feed max, she was looking ok so we were discharged on day 5, on day 6 she developed a cough and on top of no feeding, no wet nappies and very lethargic we ended up back in hospital, when we left hospital the first time her bilirubin levels were acceptable but we're sky high when we got back a day later, she was treated for 9hrs and we have been keeping an eye on those levels ever since as tgey were creeping up again yesterday, her cough has turned into a fully blown cold and she needs suctioning frequently, so my poor baby has had a horrible start to life! She is looking more yellow again today but I hope her levels are ok....
So her details are:
Khloe Rose Born 23rd June weighing 10 lb 2 1/2 Oz ( i know huge right!)
She will require surgery for her cleft around Christmas time but for now I just hope she recovers quickly
