Re: Breast milk jaundice?

I have been through jaundice 3 times before. Getting plenty of sun (indirect sunlight near a window) and getting baby to poo and pee as often as possible will help clear the bilirubin out of system. Look up reflexology and massage baby's feet along the path of the large intestine and colon. And also massage the liver point.
I was told it was breastmilk jaundice with my first and I am O+ bloodtype which is the most common for bm jaundice. but who knows? took a couple of weeks to get better, then she was fine. Your numbers going down so I don't think you should have to get more than one more stick, if that.
Don't worry! It'll get better soon.
