blue baby

Wednesday, November 2

A mama's hormones are a funny thing. Our little Everett is healthy and happy, with only a mild case of jaundice. (Not uncommon for babies born a little early) But seeing his little naked body laying there under those blue lights, all alone in the nursery - even if he had his luxurious spa goggles on - completely broke my heart. Luckily, the nurses got so tired of having a tearful mama sitting by his nursery cart, they let us take him back to our room. And then last night- take him home with a special lighted blanket for babies with jaundice, called a Bili Blanket.
So happy he's home - our little blue baby. Currently upstairs fast asleep, all lit up like a mini avatar. I've never been so tired. But never so fulfilled. Or so in love.
Off to catch some much needed zzz's.

It Started With a Wink said...

I was the same way and kept holding my baby, the pediatricians kept telling me to put him under the lights, I would look at him and cry and want to fight with the pediatricians even though I knew it was good for him

Rachel Kaylynn said...

One of my kids had jaundice too & I was also weepy and overly emotional in the Nicu..those poor nurses. It's just really hard when you can't hold your baby. Glad you are home.

Julie Khuu said...

So precious Syd! He's totally having spa day with outstretched arms and Mama's soothing breathing...baby blues be gone...praying for a speedy recovery babe!

He is so precious!!! Oh you're the same as me--when our little Jude was born I had to hold back the tears when he cried through his first bath at the hospital...mommy's are just obsessed with their little ones.
Over the moon for you two--enjoy every moment of your sweet little guy!

Lauren {love lulu} said...

congrats!! He is so so perfect and absolutely adorable :)
My baby had jaundice when he was born too. It was mild too. We didn't have the money to take home the lights and stuff and someone told us that if you keep feeding the baby and he keeps pooping, the jaundice will go away. And sure enough it did!! So don't worry too much that he has jaundice, I'm sure he will be just fine! :)
And you are a cute mama. Everett is lucky to have you :)

Shelb and Ry said...

He is so adorable. Congrats to you and the husband! So happy for your little family of 3! :)

Brittany said...

kirsten.brooke said...

Not like I'm surprised given you and your hubby's good looks, but you two did well! That is a seriously handsome baby boy. And I don't just say that...for reals, he's so handsome.

Welcome to the wonderful world of being a mommy. You'll be perfect. :)

Marissa said...

He is ABSOLUTE PERFECTION. His little face is so gorgeous. Congrats. :))

Awww he's such a beautiful baby. I wish you all the best and for you I hope he sleeps at night :)

Thank you for sharing your baby's pictures with us.

Love, Sanja

Justine said...

What a cutie pie!!

Amber said...

I know exactly what you mean! Parenting throws your heart right out in the deep end when you have to watch your own child go through this.

When my daughter was born she was diagnosed with jaundice. We were sent home with a bili blanket, had more tests run and then we got what seemed like the scariest phone call asking us to come back to the hospital for Eva to go under light therapy.

At the time, it was horrible. You just want your baby to be 100% healthy. I realise how "minor" the issue was, but you couldn't tell my heart otherwise.

I'm sure Everett will be fine. More than fine.

Stay strong!

Stephanie and Such said...

so happy he is home too!!

congrats again cute girl :)

Ami said...

congrats again! he's still beautiful, u know it ;) please get some rest!!!!

Salena @ A Little Piece of Me said...

He's adorable! My kids had jaundice and it was so hard to see them in the case with the lights. We had to get them to drink and poop all that junk out then they were fine. :)

Daryl said...

I'm in love too.

You are blessed. He is beautiful. I love it!

Allycia said...

My son had a mild case of jaundice as well when he was born and I cried all night by his side under those blue lights. But I just prayed while holding his teeny hand and we were able to take him home shortly after. So happy for you and your hubby...he is a beautiful and blessed little boy!

These photos are so sweet. And that first one of him, he looks pretty chill just kicking back in his little tank, almost like he's sprawled out on a beach blanket. Somebody get that kid a (virgin) pina colada.

Michelle said...

He is so Beautiful Sydney!!!!!! I am so happy for you and the Hubby!! Get much rest you deserve it!!!! Yes a new Mama's hormomes are all messy for awhile, I too cried over the smallest of all things after giving birth to my little girl's and I remember feeling like a big cry baby, but I did not care, I was so beyond thankful and happy to see what me and my love brought into this world!!!!!! Cry as much as you want to, it is okay..... I pray you get much rest!!!!! xoxo

My daughter was born 10/25 and she got jaundice a few days after we left the hospital. They had us rush back in and we had to stay for 2 more nights. She was in an incubator and I was only allowed to take her out for feedings. It was heartbreaking!! We just got home yesterday and have to go back in today to check her levels. At her highest, she was at 22. So terrifying even though the doctors assured me it wasn't that serious. I totally know what you're going through. Hang in there!!

Susie said...

Aw, my first had pretty bad jaundice (12) and somehow we dodged the blue lights - but she sat in the sunshine a lot. Glad you're home! I was thinking of you this morning - remembering my first few days/week of nursing and how horrible they were. I hope and pray you are not miserable - BUT, I wanted to give you the advice my friends gave me. She called me a few weeks before I was due and said #1 - don't touch your mushy stomach, it'll creep you out (I did. And it did). And #2 - if you can breastfeed for 4 weeks, you can make it. It's hard those first few weeks - but you can so do it. Hang in there! Hope he's doing well.

Brittany said...

Well done you two... these will be the very best days of your life. Love Love Love.

Katie said...

YAY! I'm SO excited for you and your family.

Bridget said...

sydney... i was there just three months ago! i literally cried and cried and cried that i had to bring parker back for a 24-hour stint in the lights... hormones are all out of whack and now the little guy that was just tucked inside you is out and under the lights! it had me all sorts of teary--and i've recovered! so, hang in there. the post partum days are crazy highs and lows but you will feel more normal soon!

AmyJ said...

This post sounds like it was written about my exact experience with my son. I was a MESS!! Everett looks pretty peaceful under his bili-lights though :) We also brought the bili-blanket home, which made me feel like my precious new bundle of joy was hooked to a vacuum hose! The good news... he is almost 9 months and as healthy as can be! Baby boys are amazing!

That second picture just makes me want to cry! I know that look of feeling so sad when your baby is hurting and you feel like you can't do anything about it.

My son was mildly jaundiced also, luckily he was able to come home with us right away as his numbers were only borderline. We just had to sunbathe the little guy for about a week. :)

Get some rest mama, enjoy getting lost in that new baby smell. <3

firstaidliz said...

Awe brings back such memories... My one year old (also named Everett) had jaundice as well even though he was like five days late. I REALLY hated seeing him stuck under that lamp :( I wish they had something like that blanket for us so we could take him home earlier. Keep up the good work.. and get plenty of rest! :)

Sarah said...

Awww that first pic is too precious! Reminds me of the pic my parents took of me "reading" a board book in the sunlight when I had jaundice. Everett is lucky to have such a devoted mama! Prayers for you and your little fam.

Brianna and Byron Putnam said...

What a cutie pie! We went through jaundice two months ago when my sweet girl was born. It was heartbreaking. We also went home with lights for one day but had to go back to the hospital because our home lights weren't cutting it. We spent 4 more days in the hospital. I never knew how serious the condition could be. I cried... A LOT. I felt like she wouldn't know how much she was loved because we couldn't cuddle her all the time. BUT, guess what... It ended! We were able to take our little girl home and haven't stopped loving on her since. everyone told me it would be fine and she would overcome it, but that's easy to say when you aren't in the moment. I totally understand your heartbreak right now. Just take it day by day and enjoy his feeding breaks :) congrats again, you are going to love motherhood.

Christa @ themeandminebook.blogspot.com said...

Oh my. His preciousness is OFF the CHARTS.

Summs78 said...

I have to admit, I'm a bit teary-eyed as I type this. I think it's because reading your post and seeing your sweet baby boy, I am taken back two years ago when I had my son. It's amazing how everything we're told about motherhood before we have children, never fully sinks in until that first moment we see our newborn. Instantly, the transformation takes place and our hearts are overloaded in the best way imagineable! Best to you and your beautiful family! Love following your blog :)

Thanks for sharing such special moments with us.

Alison said...

I had to be induced four weeks early and we had the same jaundice gig. Two days under the tanning bed. It gave me soooo much anxiety, even when we had the blanket at home for a week. esp. because we had to go to the hospital every morning and have her poor little heel poked to test her blood levels.

As a new mom that's really rough. so everyone will say, "jaundice is no big deal, it's ok" and it is, but that doesn't mean it's not really hard on you emotionally.

Also, I didn't realize that when my milk was coming in (at the same time as the jaundice stress) that was giving SUPER bad anxiety. it wasn't baby blues it was like ANXIETY, but once the hormones leveled out it was so much better. So, I'll just say you're doing great! Congratulations. And bless you both! xo

he's beautiful!! I can definitely see Tyson in him. When Slade was born, he also had a mild case of Jaundice, but we never had to use lights, breastfeeding took care of it. My husband was convinced he was just "tan". haha! Good luck with motherhood, he is just darling!!!!

he looks like he's just kickin' it in that first shot! hands behind his head, leg crossed so non-chalantly. I think you're gonna have yourself a little boy with some swaggar!

That top picture is priceless. The spa baby! Being away from them for a few minutes especially in the first few days is heartbreaking. Glad they let you take him home with the special blanket :)

Aw this made me cry. After I had Colin I was an emotional mess. He had jaundice and had to be re admitted to the hospital because of it to go under the lights. I was a hot mess to say the least breastfeeding wasn't going a I hope they were making me supplement my baby was stuck with nurses and not his mama in this little box and I couldnt hold him all the time. He came home after a few days and nursing did eventually get better but those moments will stay with me forever. It is so hard and amazing being a mommy it pulls at your heart in such weird ways. My second had jaundice too but it was breastfed jaundice so formula for 24 hours cleared it up and made me a nice stash in the freezer. Good luck with your baby everything will work out and you'll feel normal again in a couple of months hehe

He is so gorgeous! My mom told me I also had to sit under the blue light for a little as a baby. Glad he is healthy and at home now.

I know that feeling, but he'll be just fine. I worried so much about my first lil one....too much sometimes. It's hard not to, but relax...he'll be just fine.
