My youngest daughter was born with a different blood type than I was, which was very new to me, I never thought a baby could be born with a different blood type as the mother.  This was weird. We had to stay in the hospital a little bit longer because she had a slight touch of jondice.  She has the same blood type as my husband.


Has this every happened to anyone else?  What is your story?

Baby can have mother or father's blood type, or a combination (A parent and B parent can have an AB child). The only time this is an issue is if mom is RH negative and baby is positive, which can happen when mom is neg, and dad is positive.

All my auntys 9 kids were. They would have given you a needle straight after she was born to help your body if it happens again

We haven't had my youngest daughter's blood typed yet, but given the onset of jaundice (before 24 hours) and the length of time it lasted (almost 4 weeks) my mdiwife and I are pretty sure she's A+ like my husband.  All of my other children and I are O+
