Hello Mamazea, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Yellow baby can be caused by 2 possibilities, namely normal yellow or yellow disease. Jaundice is common in newborns, because babies have a large number of red blood cells that break faster or break more frequently and are replaced with new ones. The liver in newborns is not fully mature, so it is less effective at processing bilirubin and removing it from the blood and this condition makes the bilirubin in babies double that of adults, and as a result, the baby's urine, skin, and eyes appear. yellow. However, yellow in the baby's skin and eyes could be other possibilities, namely:
Inadequate exclusive breastfeeding for your baby Incompatibility of maternal and child blood groups Rhesus bile obstruction incompatible with the mother, for example when the mother is rhesus negative and the baby has a positive rhesus Baby born prematurely or born prematurely Problems with liver organs such as biliary atresia Drug effects Medicines And babies spit up, hiccup or vomit after breastfeeding. Possible causes are:
Adjustment of digestion Reflux or the return of milk that has entered the stomach due to the ring that closes the boundary between the esophagus and the esophagus does not close completely Viral or bacterial infections Poisoning Respiratory tract infections Pyloric stenosis, which is the muscle ring between the stomach and intestines is too thick so that it closes the gastric pathway and food cannot pass. We recommend that you check your baby's condition to your pediatrician, so that an examination is done. To find out the cause, the doctor will perform examinations such as a physical examination, supporting examinations such as blood, urine, and abdominal ultrasound if necessary. If your baby has had light therapy but still looks yellow it is likely that your baby is not responding to this treatment method, then the doctor will likely perform a blood transfusion.
