Today was BirBir’s FIRST doctor’s appointment after coming home from the hospital. He jaundice got better so we were able to go home, but we went today to check on it and make sure everything else was ok. We found out that her bilirubin level was still a bit high, but not enough to send her back to the hospital (thank God!) The doctor told us to just feed her more often so she could just poop it out! Since I’m breastfeeding and not giving her formula, the bilirubin will take longer to bring down.
Tomorrow we are scheduled to come back to the doctor’s to check the levels again.
