Re: One week old latching issues with jaundice and always sl
with the excellent advice above. I'd just add 2 more things you might want to do:
1. Keep the lights low in the house, and the places where you nurse. Newborns tend to close their eyes in response to bright light, and once their eyes are closing sleep often isn't far behind.
2. Take baby outside with no sunblock and no hat and put her in the full sun for at least 15 minutes per day. UV light is great for breaking down bilirubin. You can also put baby in a sunny window, but the glass will block a certain fraction of the UV light.
