Daen's 1st week

Over his 1st week, we've discovered that little Daen is a snacker, i.e. he suckles a bit, naps a while, then suckles again, etc. May has been trying hard to meet his demands almost hourly. This is very different from the tube-feeding with Vera that we're very accustomed to & has taken quite a toll on her. We've started bottle-feeding with formula as a supplement in order to give her time to 'recover'. Meanwhile, I guess she will be too exhausted to blog for a while.

In addition, he has developed a bit of jaundice, possibly due to limited number of poo. Hope some stomach massages & sun-tanning sessions in the early morning will help.
