March 30, 2012
Weight: 3 pounds 9 ounces. He lost 10 grams.
Alarms: 9 total, all self-resolved.
Oxygen/Lungs: No change.
Belly/Bowels: No change
Skin-to-Skin/Holding Time: We didn’t go up til about 8 last night and held him til about 10:30. Long day of bathroom remodeling. (Actually a long day of house chores for me.)
Feedings: Because he actually lost a little weight, they increased his feeding to 35 ml per 3 hours. However, the dr. said he may just need a little more protein in the form of a supplement. They will watch him another day or two to see if he starts catching up, then consider adding protein. She said that this is strictly because he is a boy and boys need more protein than girls. Nothing to get worked up about.
