Hospital Again?

On Friday morning, we brought Mackenzie back to the hospital to participate in St. Joseph's Healthy Beginnings program. This is a program where they double check to make sure that the baby and mother are off to a good start. Well, Mackenzie and I never left. We are still here in the hospital for two reasons...she lost 1 lb 1 oz and had high levels of bilirubin. We are doing much better today and hope to leave the hospital soon. We praise God that she is eating and getting the help she needs!

I wouldn't worry too much about the weight. I think it's normal for newborns to lose 10% of their body weight in the first week. Especially if you are nursing her. It usually takes 2 or 3 weeks for her weight to come back up to birth weight.
