Jaundice is a disease that occurs in 70% of newborn babies soon after birth. Due to the fact that this disease is seen in infants, parents are rightly concerned about a number of concerns. In fact, it often happens that babies recover and return to normal after a short period of time.
What Causes Jaundice in Newborn Babies?
It is caused by the forced elimination of the yellow liquid produced by the livers, called bilirubin, which starts with the birth of babies and causes jaundice. Although this condition is very common in newborn babies and although it is a naturally occurring condition, it is essential to treat the baby.
How do we know when jaundice is gone in a newborn baby?
It should not be discharged until 72 hours after the birth of the baby. If discharged, it is absolutely necessary to carry out procedures such as examination and treatment within 2 days of discharge. Within the specified time frame, approximately 1 week later, it will be seen that the jaundice gradually disappears.
