Jaundice in new born baby


Registered User
Jaundice refers to the yellow color of the skin and whites of the eyes caused by excess bilirubin in the blood. Bilirubin is produced by the normal breakdown of red blood cells.

Jaundice occurs when bilirubin builds up faster than a newborn's liver can break it down and pass it from the body. View attachment 60733
Breast-feeding jaundice may occur when your baby does not drink enough breast milk. The jaundice indicates a need for help with more breast-feeding.

Breast-milk jaundice is caused by a special substance that some mothers produce in their milk. This substance causes your baby's intestine to absorb more bilirubin back into his body than normal.

Phototherapy View attachment 60734 Phototherapy is the use of visible light for the treatment of hyperbilirubinemia in the newborn. This relatively common therapy lowers the serum bilirubin level by transforming bilirubin into water-soluble isomers that can be eliminated without conjugation in the liver.
