Jerald at 2 Months Old

Jerald turned 2 months old on 28 March 2016.

He was finally allowed to have is immunisation (delayed from his 1st month clinic visit) on 15 March 2016. He weighed 3.4kg and was 56cm in length. He also started a cough which he likely caught from the rest of the family.

His jaundice was finally on a downward trend since 3 March 2015 and serum bilirubin (SB) level was 98µmol/L on 24 March 2016.

Jerald started going to daycare since 21 March 2016 in view of Angie returning to work after maternity leave at the end of March 2016. Much to our surprise, since he had to be bottlefed expressed breast milk at the daycare centre, he was drinking quite a lot and the stock of expressed breast mild didn't last long. On 28 March 2016, he started drinking formula milk in addition to the daily supply of expressed breast milk.

Jerald at 1 Month Old

Jerald turned 1 month old on 28 February 2016.

The past month had been pretty eventful after Jerald was found to be having prolonged jaundice. It all started when the health nurse found him to be slightly yellow during the home visit when Jerald was 2 days old. Blood test results showed a serum bilirubin (SB) of 113µmol/L. SB levels fluctuated in the 200+ range and reached its highest 300µmol/L on 8 February 2016. From the health clinic, he was referred to Penang General Hospital for follow-ups. Blood tests, including liver function tests, were normal.

His clinic visit was on 3 March 2016. He now weighs 3.2kg and is 52cm long. His scheduled vaccination was postponed due to his jaundice.

We celebrated his full moon with lunch on 27 February 2016 in Penang.
