Dr. S. Jimmie's pediatrician looked Jimmie over today and listened to Rachael intently. The great news is he found nothing wrong. He was very encouraging and complementary of Rachael. He assured her that she did the right thing by bringing him in. He reiterated it's always better to be safe than sorry.
Basically we'll probably never know for sure why Jimmie had such a bad time during his feedings the last few days. And it may happen off and on, but as long as he's gaining weight and having a good amount of wet diapers Rachael will try not to worry. It's quite possible Jimmie may just be starting a "fussy baby" phase. She's cutting dairy and chocolate from her diet just in case something in her milk has been bugging him. I think it could have been the antibiotics Rachael was taking for her mastitis.
Anyway Jimmie is healthy and totally adorable! Rach brought him over after his appointment and they hung out at my house this afternoon. Then Jimmie took his first stroller ride down to moms.
I am so happy to report that Jimmie has eaten well since yesterday!
Thank you so much for your love and prayers!
