Jaundice is one of the oldest early childhood conditions. My mom told me that in previous years when symptoms were identified, the newborn was simply exposed to early morning sun. In a few days, the child would be jaundice free.
Surprisingly, I have seen families almost lose their newborns to jaundice in this 21st century, even though the symptoms were noticeable. Some of these people had to spend so much on expensive medical procedures, fighting to save the lives of their babies.
Second, do we wish and pray everything back to our enemies, as we are very religious in Nigeria?
Well, a stitch in time saves nine, the old adage is still accurate.
Jaundice usually occurs between the second and fourth day of the baby’s birth. Mothers discharged 72 hours after delivery are at a higher risk. To prevent this, p Please check back with your health care provider between the third and seventh day, especially if you notice any of the symptoms.
