‘Bringing Up Bates:’ Josie Balka Celebrates Two Months With Baby Hazel

It’s an exciting time for the Bringing Up Bates family. Josie Bates Balka recently gave birth to her second baby, a daughter named Hazel Sloane. After she was born, Hazel had to spend some time in the NICU. Josie shared that, throughout her pregnancy with Hazel, her blood was fighting against her daughter’s blood. After she was born, doctors found that she has an “exceedingly rare blood condition.” The baby also had jaundice.

Fortunately, she went home after a short time in the NICU. On social media, Josie has been sharing updates about her new baby as she grows. Hazel joined her big sister Willow at home, and the sisters seem to be getting along well already.
