    Default jaundice

    Coco still has a yellowish tinge in her eyes and on her skin. She is 10 days old, and Im wondering why it hasn't gone yet. She is definitely not overly sleepy and has put on weight so is feeding ok. Is it common to last this long. She's not VERY yellow, but there is a tinge there.xo

    Emma stayed Jaundiced for a couple of weeks, but not too bad. Indirect sunlight and frequent feeding is what I was told & it just gradually got less & less....

    Kam had it really badly and even after coming home we were nearly hosptialised again, but he was okay. We had to put him to sleep near a filtered sunlight window. We had a big window with just lace hanging and so the nurse said that was a perfect area, and give plently of fluids.

    Hope it clears quickly for you.

    Love

    Thanks guys. Of course it's a cloudy day today, and cold, just when i want her in the light. Anyway, I'll give her time in the light regardless. She fed quite alot last night, so Im hoping it all helps get rid of it. Her skin doesn't seem so bad, her eyes are just a bit cloudy, I'd like them to be clear! xo
