A midwife visit yesterday showed that Lucie has lost weight, which is obviously not good. She’s feeding but seems very drowsy and isn’t as awake as she should be. The jaundice is still present, which may be a factor.
We therefore made the decision to swap to bottle feeding yesterday so we could measure out feeds and ensure she was getting exactly what she needed. Unfortunately, after a couple of gulps, she simply feel asleep. We called out the on-call midwife who tried and got the same result. She then sent us to A&E and they’ve been moved to the Children’s Short Stay Unit, where they’re being monitored.
As soon as I know anything else, I’ll let you know.
