Re: [IP] baby question



my baby was 8 wks early and took 20cc, i never heard anything
like this. he was in NICU for 14 days, he had to learn how to suck, swallow
and breath and he was jaundice really bad and was in and out of the
bilirubin (sp?) lights

he went home taking 20cc.

are you working with YOUR pediatrician??

congrats and get some sleep!
