bilirubin gets stored in the skin.

3 HOME REMEDIES FOR NEWBORN JAUNDICE


1. YOU CAN MINIMIZE THE BABY SLEEP TIME
Jaundice may make your baby to sleep to much and leave him/her
fatigued. Therefore, try to reduce his/her sleep time by waking
him/her frequently from sleep for feeds.

2. BREASTFEED THE BABY OFTEN
Feeding the baby often like every two hours is a very effective home
remedy against jaundice. It is recommended to be given the baby breast
milk which is full of antibodies because food high on fluids will help
to excrete bilirubin through the urine.

3. EXPOSE BABY TO SUNLIGHT

Your child should start to feel better after few days of constant
exposure to sunlight. This is because the sun dissolves the excess
bilirubin which is then excreted through the urine. Expose your baby
to the sun for a few minutes and let the sun's rays fall on the baby.
