Watch your baby for signs of jaundice returning or getting worse.
Your baby’s skin or the whites of the eyes turn yellow.
If jaundice gets worse, the yellow color will move from the eyes to your baby's face; then it will move down your baby's body toward the feet.
Breastfeed your baby often, at least 8 to 12 times every 24 hours. (Remember, most babies with jaundice improve after eating for several days.)
If you are using formula, discuss the best feeding schedule with your doctor.
Make a follow-up appointment as directed by our staff.
Call your doctor immediately if your baby has any of the following:
Not eating or drinking; refusing the breast or bottle
Losing weight or trouble gaining weight
Stools that are white or gray
Jaundice that gets worse (yellow color moving toward the feet)
Jaundice that does not improve by 2 weeks of age
Jaundice that goes away but then comes back
Fever, irritability, vomiting
Being less responsive to parents
