Anybody knows a lot about neonatal jaundice? Actually my 10 days old daughter have affected by this type of jaundice. her bilirubin counts 23.04 mg/dl. atpresent she is completely cure. is there any chance of any problem in her future life? what precaution should I take?
I've had a couple of grandbabies born jaundiced. One of them they wrapped in a special light blanket for about a week. They are now 8, 10 and 14 years old perfectly healthy.
My baby also gone through Phototherapy treatment for 7 days. on last Friday morning she has been releashed from Nursing Home
Thanks weedog for your valuable comments. I have one more question: is there any chance of any type of defectiveness of my baby due to this neonatal jaundice?
Thanks again. I will check this sites.
Thanks weedog again. I have gone through the sites you have suggested. My child is ok and fine now.
my son was born jaundice too....when the sun is up early in the morning, we will expose him to the sun around 10mins. everyday...
sudip, this is quite common in babies. This has no relation with adult jaundice. My brother's first daughter was born with this symptom and was kept under photo-therapy for 10 days. This usualy happens due to the mismatch of blood group between the child and the mother. My niss is now 9 years old in perfect health. So donot worry.
