DRINKING ORANGE JUICE DURING PREGNANCY WILL GIVE MY BABY JAUNDICE
Jaundice results when there is too much bilirubin in the blood and symptoms include a yellow colouring of the skin or the whites of the eyes. Bilirubin is produced when red blood cells are broken down and processed by the liver to be passed out in your baby’s meconium. However, your newborn’s liver functioning is still immature and may not be able to adequately rid his body of the bilirubin. Jaundice is usually present two days after birth and clears in two weeks. If your baby appears to have jaundice (is very sleepy, yellow and doesn’t wake up to feed), seek medical advice as soon as you can.
