Baby Rosa and Mum were able to go home from hospital on Day Three ~ and for a while the little family settled down together as a unit and all got a good night's sleep.
Nanna Sue visited and took some lovely shots:
Grandpa visited the next day and baby was having a little trouble feeding. She kept falling asleep on the breast and it became a little frustrating for both mum and baby.
She was no nearly as happy here, was she?
Last night I heard they returned to hospital because baby has now become slightly jaundiced and the hospital staff want to get to the bottom of the feeding problem. I think they let mothers and babies out too quickly these days . . . but it is so busy and rather like a conveyor belt.
Babies are are all little miracles aren't they, and it is quite amazing how they develop into perfect little people. Not long ago Rosa was developing inside her mummy before she became a noticeable baby bump:
We hope Mother and baby can return home soon. It's quite a worrying time for all of us until things settle down on the feeding front.
I have just heard that they are able to come home again. Both parents are very quiet and they have been advised to be much noisier when baby is feeding so she stays awake.
