Hi dokI want to ask this, my child at the age of 4 weeks the yellow has not disappeared. with formula milk. NUTRAMIGEN’S milk … Now my child is 6 weeks old, can it be replaced? Is it OK to continue breastfeeding?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of jaundice in infants, also called jaundice and this can occur due to various causes, including:
Jaundice or yellow breastfeeding arising from lack of breast milk consumption Breast jaundice or yellow arising precisely from consuming breast milk Lack of certain enzymes in the liver Viral and bacterial infections Liver damage
In the case of your child, it is likely that the yellow condition he is experiencing is due to breast milk, which is why his milk is changed to formula milk. This condition can actually improve by itself and when the function of his organs is getting older, he can still drink breast milk. Some experts even claim that breast milk should not be stopped at all.
But still, we don't know whether the reason for your pediatrician is as we expected. Therefore, you still have to reconfirm whether your child's condition is ready to return to try breastfeeding or not by asking directly. However, the doctor does the examination of your child and best understands his condition. So, hopefully answering your question.
