Wow.. what an afternoon! Well little Callen is here! Or Baby G as we are calling him.. after G Callen on NCIS Los Angeles.
He is touch and go though, we'll see how the night goes. I opted for the assisted hatch and took my time with it making sure everything was going good. I would moisten the membrane, remove a little shell, make sure that he was still moving, breathing and chirping and then put him back in with mom and dad. They would immediately get on him and keep him warm. I did this every 20 to 30 minutes. So finally around 5:30 he was completely out. A half an hour ago I got a few drops of Pedialyte into him as he is just a sleepy little guy. He's a good pink, breathing good and mom and dad are still keeping him warm. His abdomen looked good, not black and he still had a little bit of his yolk sac, but not much. It has already almost shriveled up. I'd like to see him a little more active. It will be a long night I think. So let's keep our fingers crossed for him.
Question... how often should I give him a few drops of Pedialyte?
