Our son came bursting into the world on Dec 26th. He was in such a hurry the Dr didn't even make it on time. Luckily one of the nurses had enough sense to catch him!
he is generally healthy and I was able to keep him with me. The echo showed a couple issues (insufficient aorta, and patent ductus), but the pedi said both seem mild and he will likely outgrow them. We have an appt with the pediatric cardiologist in a few weeks to follow up.
we've been having a bit of trouble with nursing because he has been super sleepy, and seems to have a tongue thrust issue. We have been seeing a LC and she gave me a nipple shield that seems to be helping. She also validated my decision to supplement with an ounce of bm after attempting to nurse.
we are waiting for the results of the chromosome testing to confirm his Down syndrome diagnosis, but I would be very very surprised if he didn't have it.
I can't post a picture from my phone, so you will have to trust me that he is the cutest baby ever
thanks again for all of your support!
