Christy's Visit


Christy Santoro, our midwife, came for our third home visit today. She examined Anjali. Her color is good, the mild  jaundice is gone, and she has regained all her birth weight and is back to 7lbs, 5 ou today. Her latch is good and we have mastered two breastfeeding postitions that are comfortable for mama. Then, we had to do the metabolic testing which was no fun for Anjali because she had to get her heel pricked. Then Christy checked out mama who is healing very nicely too. She still wants mama not to climb stairs and to continue the lying-in period for another week. She brought her happy baby Zela who met Anjali the day she was born and on the first home visit too.
