Re: Jaundice and formula/breastfeeding

My hospital and doctor really encouraged my bfing even tho my son was a little jaundice. We went home after 3 days and a nurse came to our house 36 hours later and my sons bill levels were dangerously high, 27. He was readmitted to the hospital put under the lights and they got an I've going. He has some general global delays but overall is ok.

I wish someone had given me some options. We ended up cup feeding while I continued to work at bfing (and he had the iv for a week). When he was a month old I gave up and bottle fed my bm. It took until he was 6 months old for him to not look orange
