jaundice?

Anyone child still a little yellow after 4 weeks? She had it really bad to begin with it was up to 12 but that was a week after she was born and now she is just a little bit tan or yellow not sure but when you touch her skin it turns pale. Has anyone had this happen?

  • Yep...with my first two. I would sit them in nothing but a diaper by the front window, in direct sun light everyday for 15 min....it went away.

  • No, but I'd take her to the doctor just to make sure.

  • If you think she's too yellow, have her rechecked. Keep putting her in the sun as you can.

    If it's worse than say a couple days ago, definitely have her rechecked.
