Tips for nusing mother when baby Jaundice

Nowadays baby easy get Jaundice after birth. From Wikipedia, Jaundice, (also known as icterus, attributive adjective: icteric) is a yellowish pigmentation of the skin, the conjunctival membranes over the sclerae (whites of the eyes), and other mucous membranes caused by hyperbilirubinemia (increased levels of bilirubin in the blood). This hyperbilirubinemia subsequently causes increased levels of bilirubin in the extracellular fluids.

I just give birth my 2nd baby on September 27th this year. My 2nd daughter recover faster from Jaundice compare to my 1st child,. What i did differently is i fully give breast milk for this 2nd baby. I have misunderstood that giving mix breast milk with formula milk would help my baby recover faster from Jaundice. I get to know that baby Jaundice level will easy go down if baby able stool and urinate more often. With breast milk it will help baby stool and urinate more often. Thus, My 2nd daughter able stool and urinate more compare to my 1st child with the breast milk. Thus, she recover faster.

Besides, i also cut down taking ginger and " So Hup"  during confinement. Let me know if you have other thoughts.

  1. Thank you for taking this step. It would be interesting to know how helpful it has been for you personally. I like the idea of dofollow blogs, but get very irritated when the bulk of the responses are of the kind, "Great post, I enjoyed reading it," or "Fantastic blog, keep up the good work."
