Another Weight Check for Colby

Colby had another appointment today for a weight check. He is now 6 lbs 14 oz.... Almost back up to his birth weight on 6 lbs 15.5 oz!

The doctor was also happy with his color. He said that Colby doesn't need to do any more bili counts unless he starts to look more yellow again.

The doctor also said that we could start trying to let him go four hours at night in between feelings. We've been doing three and I've been having a really hard time getting him to wake up and eat for more than a minute or two at night. Hopefully if I let him go a little bit longer he will be hungry and eat a little bit more.

Yesterday Colby's belly button started to bleed a little bit. We switched back to disposable diapers because they don't cover his belly button. The doctor looked at it and said it looked okay and suggested putting some rubbing alcohol on it when I change diapers today and keeping him in disposables until it looks better. He said he thinks we should be able to go back to cloth tomorrow.
