So, we went back to bring Sebastien to the hospital this morning. He actually gained back all the grams that he lost! So, the doctor there was not worried at all. He charted Sebastien’s growth and he said he’s in the 75th percentile. So that’s very good. We have nothing to worry about and this diarreah should go away by itself. They’re gonna write Sebastien’s pediatrician a note so they can track his progress in the next week or so if we are still worried. Oh well, in the end, it’s better to err in the side of caution and be called a paranoid n00b parnet, rather than be sorry and regret not doing anything in the first place.
It’s hard to see your own kid cry and you know that they’re in pain. You can’t do anything about it but see them ride it out. Specially for one so young.
Sebastien has been dealing with the stomach flu for the last 3 days. The doctors here say it’s viral and since he is feeding well, we got sent home and was told to “wait it out”. We’re actually considering bringing him back to emergency tommorow or maybe call the pediatrician that’s looking after him because now it’s affecting his sleep as well. *sigh* It’s gonna be another long night.
Hello all! Sebastien is now 10 weeks old and a happy 10lb 10oz baby! We went to visit the doctor on Oct. 18th and the Pediatrician said it’s okay now for our family doctor to see him. He doesn’t need special care anymore. He’s also now 100% breastfed. No more bottles! YEY!
Unfortunately, on Friday, Oct.13, he caught a stomach flu and has diarreah. Today, he’s doing much better, although we think that it’s still not completely out of his system.
I’ve updated the pics on the gallery with some more Sebastien 10 week old photos. They are super cute! Here’s a sample:
Sofia gave birth to a healthy baby boy on July 29, 2006, 10:05am. His name is Sebastien Bernardi Layarda de Rama, a 4lb 6oz preemie at 33 weeks and 1 day. It’s been pretty surreal for us. After two weeks of milk delivery in the hospital, he’s finally discharged yesterday, August 12. He’s now at home with the proud parents.
