Zach and Whitney Bates’ fourth baby is growing up fast! The Bringing Up Bates family recently grew, and the parents welcomed their son, Jadon Carl, to the world. As we reported, after his birth, he had to spend some time in the NICU.
Via social media, Zach and Whitney shared many updates about their son. After birth, his O2 levels dropped and his right lung collapsed. So, he had to be placed on a ventilator and had a chest tube put in. Fans sent love and encouragement their way during such a difficult time.
Fortunately, after staying in the NICU for over a week, Jadon was healthy enough to come home on June 16. His parents documented the special moment they had waited so long for. Since he got home, the family has shared a handful of updates about him as well as what’s new with their family. In a recent Instagram post, Zach and Whitney revealed they bought a house.
So, it sounds like things are going well for the family. Now, Whitney has another update to share with fans.
