Hello Yudi, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Yellow is actually a fairly common condition in newborns. Yellow in babies can be caused by high levels of bilirubin (yellow pigment) in the baby's blood. Yellow in newborns themselves are physiological (normal) and others are not. The physiological yellow usually begins to appear when the baby is 2 to 4 days old and will disappear on its own within 2 weeks. This physiological jaundice usually does not cause certain problems in infants and bilirubin levels are not high until they reach dangerous levels. Several factors increase the risk of developing yellow in infants:
babies born prematurely
babies with low birth weight
there are differences in blood type or rhesus between mother and baby
there are complications in the form of cephalhematoma because labor is difficult
infection in infants
the presence of certain diseases in infants such as sickle cell anemia, deficiency of certain metabolic enzymes, disorders of the liver and biliary tract, certain genetic diseases, etc.
lack of oxygen / hypoxia in infants
in infants who are breastfed, sometimes also breastfeeding that is lacking can cause yellow in babies in the first week after birth.
If the yellow that is experienced by your child until it is visible to the ends of the hands and feet, your baby has decreased consciousness (sleep continues), do not want to suckle / milk can not enter, do not gain weight or lose weight more than 7 -10% of birth weight, indeed the baby should be immediately taken to the hospital. Babies should receive further evaluation and management to avoid bilirubin poisoning in the baby's brain. Treatment for yellow babies can vary depending on how high the bilirubin is, the child can only need light therapy, or can also require other more invasive therapies such as exchange transfusions. The action you take (taking the child to the hospital) is correct.
You should discuss again with the pediatrician who treats your child in the hospital. The child's doctor certainly knows more about your child's overall condition, so that he can provide more complete information for you and your family.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
