want to ask, when my baby was born in the hospital udh yellow, then in the light for 3 days. After coming home from the hospital he was 5 days old. But at home it is rarely dried in the sun because the weather is cloudy, the heat is not allowed at 9 o’clock. Now it’s 4 weeks old, can it get yellow again even though it has been exposed to light?

1 Answer:

Hi.


A yellow baby can consist of jaundice that is physiological (normal) or caused by a disease. Is jaundice in your baby considered normal or due to a certain disease? you should ask the pediatrician who treats your child. Some of the normal characteristics of yellow in children, such as appearing more than 24 hours after birth, usually the yellow color can disappear in less than 14 days, the bilirubin level is not more than 5mg / dL.


If the yellow in your child is due to a physiological yellow, then if the yellow has disappeared then the yellow in the baby usually does not occur again even if it is not dried in the sun.


However, if your child's jaundice is caused by a certain disease, the jaundice will usually persist and can reappear.


Therefore, it is recommended that you make it a habit of drying your child in the morning less than 9 am, and in the afternoon above 4. If your child's yellow appears again, then immediately consult your doctor.
