After the appointment, Katie Bates Clark recorded herself talking and offered an update. The new mom got pretty emotional and was all choked up while explaining what is going on with her little girl’s health. She said this was her ninth attempt at filming this video because she had cried every other time.

Katie said, “Basically, long story short, Hailey is not back up to her birth weight, which the doctors are a little concerned about because she is so small, to begin with. She’s only a few ounces down from what it is, but because she’s 10 days old, basically they said Friday, we have another appointment. And if she’s not back up to her birth weight, we’re gonna have to do, like, supplemental things.”

She said that she would “prefer not to” but she understands her little one might need it anyway. She started getting a little more emotional at the end and said she’s “hoping she gains the weight.”

Katie captioned the video, “The mom in me is getting emotional.”

Katie Bates also shared that they have another follow-up appointment on Friday. So, hopefully, things improve by then. Katie and Travis will likely share another update soon via Instagram or YouTube. Be on the lookout for more details about Hailey’s health.
