Re: Jaundice Baby - help pls!
My baby was jaundiced at birth and still is. My Dr. checked his bili levels at the one week visit and they were normal, despite the apparent jaundice in his face and chest. He didn't seem too concerned and said it would most likely go away by the time we go back at the 2 week check up. I don't think it disappears overnight-
I did supplement my baby in the hospital w/ formula and also before my milk came in. The formula was rough on his tummy but I'm glad I did because he was just incredibly fussy until he was able have a wee bit of formula.
I'm having some BF problems, as we're just getting started with everything and some feedings I'm supplementing with a BM bottle. I know I probably don't need to do this anymore as he's making lots of poopy diapers but its working for us now.
I think that as long as you keep up the BF a bottle of BM would be okay, esp. if necessary to clear the jaundice until your milk comes in.
Keep us posted on the jaundice, I'm curious since I'm going through the same thing with my cutie.
