Question: My 22 days old baby's eyes look sometimes yellow but pee is normal and nails are pink...Is he is suffering from jaundice.? His jaundice level is 13 on 2nd day of birth
Answer: Newborn jaundice is very common and can occur when babies have a high level of bilirubin, a yellow pigment produced during normal breakdown of red blood cells. In older babies and adults, the liver processes bilirubin, which then passes it through the intestinal tract. However, a newborn’s still-developing liver may not be mature enough to remove bilirubin.
This causes baby's eye and skin to appear slightly yellowish. Normally newborn jaundice goes away with on 2 3 weeks from birth as baby’s liver start developing by then and he is also taking mother's feed.
Try these remedies to reduce the yellowness in baby's skin and eye-
1) Try to place baby near a glass window where ample of sunlight comes. Do this after massaging the baby. Leave him in sunlight without covering his skin for 10-15mins. The UV light from sun helps break down the bilirubin in components which can be easily passed through stool thus reducing the yellowness.
2) Feed baby at every 2 hours for 20 mins each breast. Breastmilk speeds up baby’s recovery.
If still there are no changes please consult your paediatrician. Take care.
