Did your child have jaundice? What week were they born?

My first two had jaundice...had to stay in the hospital. They were both born at 37 weeks

I am STILL pregnant with my third...38 weeks 4 days...and hoping her being inside longer will help her avoid jaundice

What do you think?

Did your baby have jaundice, what week were they born?

  • yep all three....

    first was born 37 weeks
    second 39 weeks
    and 3rd 38 weeks....

    I was told its a blood type thing so your 3rd will probably have it too...all my kids were in the hospital 3 days with it.

  • both of mine did but my first had to go back and be put under the billie lights cause hers just got worse and that was within her first week. but my second she had a touch of it but it went away pretty fast with no problems. my first was born at 38w 4d and the second was 40w3d.

  • Both of mine did. My daughter was born 2 weeks early and I had to bring the light home with me for her jaundice. My son was born 3 weeks early. I didn't have to bring the light home with me, but we had to stay in the hospital a couple of extra days so he could stay under the light there.

  • My son did but it cleared up on its own and he was born 12 minutes shy of 42 weeks.
