Jerald at 3 Months Old

Jerald turned 3 months old on 28 April 2016.

His prolonged jaundice finally subsided on 31 March 2016 when his serum bilirubin (SB) level went down to 81┬Ámol/L.

As of 12 April 2016 (2.5 months), he weighed 4.75kg and was 57cm in length.

His development updates:
  • Still trying to lift his head while on his tummy.
  • Has started his "ah-goos", and "ah-oos".
  • Can hold his head steady when upright.
  • Blows lots of raspberries
  • Loves to suck his fists.
  • Can bear some weight on his legs when held upright.
This month, we were somewhat concerned that he was not tracking objects well with his eyes. After consulting a pediatric ophthalmologist, everything seemed fine physically with his eyes. He's likely to be having delayed visual maturation (DVM). However, DVM is a diagnosis by exclusion, i.e. other factors need to be ruled out. Checks by other pediatricians and ophthalmologist also found his growth alright and his eyes normal. The neurologist suggested doing an MRI to be sure that his brain is processing what the eyes are seeing.
