My sister is the one who told me about this wonderful site and encouraged me to join, I only wish I knew about this sooner since I was on bed rest since I was 15 weeks pregnant.
So I guess I'll give a quick intro to our story. My little munchkin was born Jan.10th at 32 wks due to poor NST tests and BPP, I as well had complications throughout pregnancy, including subchorionic hematoma, gestational hypertension, gestational diabetes (insulin dependant), oligo and IUGR. Soin the end, the high risk team at the hospital thought it best that i have a c-section since there was very little growth to my baby in the last month and we kept failing the biophysical profile test (Tristan didn't seem to be moving and my fluid was down to 2cm). Tristan was born at 3 lbs, but besides being small he was healthy! We stayed 1 month in the NICU and were discharged when he reached 4.5 lbs. My little man know weighs somewhere btw 6.5-7 lbs!!! I call him my little heffer.
So far so good, except that he still doesn't latch on to my breast so Im exclusively pumping but hope with practice since he is getting bigger everyday he will learn to take my breast instead of the bottle. We are going to see the doctor today because this week he started what looks like to me baby acne but since yesterday it seems to have spread to his forehead/scalp and ears and is started to flake so Im thinking its more likely eczema. any other mommies have this problem and what did you do?
