The Reason For Babies 2 Weeks Old Is Still Yellow?
But my child urinates it is not colored, and his bowel is colored. Isn’t it dangerous or not … ???
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
As explained by Dr. Adhi Pasha before, the causes of yellow in infants can vary. Yellow physiological or normal yellow (yellow that occurs because the baby's liver is not fully mature when new born) will generally disappear within 1-2 weeks. If until the age of 2 weeks your baby is still yellow, it is necessary to do further evaluation to find the cause of the yellow. Yellow babies at this age generally occur because:
less breastfed babies (or called breastfeeding jaundice)
yellow due to breastfeeding (or called breastmilk jaundice)
disorders of the liver or bile
severe infection in infants
Among these conditions, yellow which is caused by liver or gallbladder disorders and yellow that is caused due to severe infection is dangerous. One of the main clues to the existence of liver or gallbladder disorders is a pale chapters. While one indication of severe infection in infants is a baby who has a fever.
Although your baby's bowel movements are not pale and your baby has no fever, other conditions (breastfeeding jaundice and breastmilk jaundice) can also be dangerous if bilirubin in your baby's blood is very high. Therefore, if at 2 weeks old your baby still looks yellow, you should immediately take your baby to the pediatrician. If you see symptoms such as decreased awareness in infants (babies look asleep continuously or fall asleep even though they are stimulated), the baby looks dehydrated (read the signs of dehydration in this article), your baby has a fever, the baby looks weak and does not active, yellow visible to the palms and legs, then you should immediately bring your baby to the hospital. Although entering the Eid holiday, doctors in the hospital will not be off and the hospital will remain open.
If your baby does not seem to experience these symptoms, you can try breastfeeding your baby more often (every 1-2 hours) and make sure you breastfeed effectively, and pay attention to the adequacy of your baby's urine and bowel movements. Plan to see a pediatrician as soon as the Eid holiday ends.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
