Diagnosed with Jaundice


Tookie was diagnosed with Jaundice the very next day :(.. Though its normal with new borns.. She was kept in the Apollo Nursery for 2 days..
A common condition in newborns, jaundice refers to the yellow color of the skin and whites of the eyes caused by excess bilirubin in the blood. Bilirubin is produced by the normal breakdown of red blood cells.A newborn baby’s still-developing liver may not yet be able to remove adequate bilirubin from the blood.
