Crazy Last Week!

This past Tuesday I took Jasper in for another weight check at the Dr (his last appointment he had gained 4oz) so we expected more weight gain. However he hadn't gained any, but hadn't lost any. Dr. Melton told me she wanted us to head over to the hospital and stay a few nights so we could observe him and see why he wasn't gaining any weight! He also had a little cough and stuffy nose and they tested him and he also had RSV (respiratory infection). We stayed 3 nights at the hospital and the reason he wasn't gaining was his suction isn't strong and wasn't getting enough when he nursed. So what we have been doing is I have been pumping and then giving him what I pump and then supplement with as much formula as he wants. Dr. Melton said let him have as much anytime he wants! In the hospital we went in weighing 7lbs 14oz and when we left he was up to 8lbs 5oz! So hopefully we are on the right track to him gaining and become a very chubby baby! He has been sleeping so well and has been such a happy boy since we have been home! Here are a few pictures of my happy boy!
