Mellow Yellow

So we were sent back to the hospital by the midwife to have a jaundis test done. It seems Maizey had lost more than 10% of her birth weight and was appearing yellow.
We spent the night. Ang and I on our little cot and Maizey in her incubator under the photo therapy lights. Feeding every 3 hours 15 min per breast, then a quick diaper change and a top up of formula, it really was a good night... We seem to have a better routine going and Maizey seems to be more content. My milk is finally here, so she's getting more with the breast feeding. I'm just waiting to get that pesky first BM out of my way! Ugh... Constipation :(
A few poor quality iPhone pictures for you.

Jaundice is always difficult in those first days. Riley had failure to thrive and then suddenly gained a bunch of weight at once. Hang in there.

Going to the bathroom is the worst after birth. You are so nervous about the pressure after tearing. I had it the worst with Jackson--back pain and a hemroid. Yuck. It'll come (hahaha) and try not to stress about it.
