Jaundice

A common thingy for all newborns, jaundice usually appear from the 3rd day onwards. We noticed Caden's jaundice on the 4th day. Few days out in the morning sun did not help him much and thus on the 7th day we brought him to the hospital and his jaundice reading was 14.5. This is consider slightly high. He was admitted.

The next day, the reading went down to 12 but cant be discharged as his reading need to be down to 10. Two nights in the special care nursery and Caden is discharged with the reading of 6. We were surprised that the special care nursery was full. More than 10 babies in there!!

It's baby boom time! :)
