The Banana Blues

(viewed 2035 times)

Our little banana had to be admitted in hospital for her first (and hopefully) last UV sunbed. Not the most pleasant experience as we were slightly kept in the dark about what was going on each time there was a change of shift. Luckily for us, Rose responded well to the photo therapy treatment and we were discharged Monday morning at 1 am. Since the banana colour is nearly gone and we had our first night last night with nearly 3 hours of sleep between feeds. Not bad at just two weeks :)

10 days old and she was already at the tanning salon. This one's going to be trouble...

She really didn't like those eye shades and I can't believe that she enjoyed any of the 18 hours of UV treatment. But her jaundice seems to be clearing up nicely, so worth the discomfort.

Glad she's coming along. From the photo I thought you were trying to turn her into a Na'vi.

Sorry you had to go through that, but if it's any consellation my nephew had the same experience - 8 weeks prem and severly jaundiced - but he's now a strapping young lad of 14 months : )

Aw, you poor things, but it's the only thing to do - at that age they just won't stay still enough for a good, even spray tan. ;)

Aaaw, I'm glad Rose responded well. A friend of ours went through the same thing with their daughter when she was a newborn.

Thanks for all the good wishes. We were finally discharged from the care of the midwives yesterday and Rose put on 330 g in a week....back at her birthweight and growing :) I must be doing something right then (apart from leaving hari on nappy duty lol most of the time)
