Please share your experience with your baby's case of jaundice. Submit Your Comment

Comment from: 3-6 Male (Caregiver) Published: July 30

My baby was diagnosed with jaundice 2 days after delivery and lab tests revealed that the bilirubin was too high. He was managed by exchange transfusion, phototherapy and immunoglobulins but I was told he will have delayed development of milestones. Indeed he only walked at 2 years with help of occupational therapy but does not talk yet, not even mama! It was a very sad experience for me as this was my first born.
