6 months old

Possum is now 6 months old!

He weighs 5kg.
He has found his hands and likes to suck his fingers and thumbs.
He was rolling from tummy to back 3 weeks ago but hasn't since heart surgery.
He has had surgery to repair bilateral ingroinal hernias.
He has had surgery to ligate a PDA.
He is still wearing 0000 clothes.
He has moved from newborn nappies into infant size, just in the last week.
He smiles a lot.
He has started cooing.
He has been hospitalised once since the initial discharge.
He remains on iron for anaemia.
He is on monitoring for apnoeas.
He breastfeeds well, but still every 2-3 hours around the clock.
Mostly he settles himself to sleep.
He loves being in the Hug-a-Bub.
