MY DAUGHTER HAD JAUNDISE WHEN SHE WAS BRN THE DOCTOR SAID TO JUST KEEP THEM IN A DIAPER AND TAKE THEM OUTSIDE FOR NO MORE THAN 10 TO 20 MINUTES AT TIME. TAKE THE BABY OUT SIDE ABOUT 3 TO 4 TIMES A DAY OR YOU CAN SIT IN THE HOUSE NEXT TO THE WINDOW.

Sunlight can help jaundice. I would say to put the cot near the window. But not direct sunlight. If your baby does look very yellow it needs a sbr (jaundice level test)

My 8 month old grandson looks yellow, his eyes are not real white, but we do not see yellow in them.

When my daughter was a newborn, she had jaundice for like 4-5days..i put her in the sun light for 10-15 mins..until she turns a lil bit red i take her out. but dont let the baby eyes facing the sun, too bright..put a lil goggles on them

The pediatrician told me you're supposed to press on the baby's foot...your thumb should leave a white mark that will fade. If the white mark is yellow instead, the baby has jaundice.

It doesn't have to be direct sunlight, just natural daylight will do the trick. Nadya had jaundice. I just took her for short walks round the park and fed her and put her to sleep near a window. It was gone after a couple of weeks. I don't think babies are supposed to be put in direct sunlight at that age.

any light will help. try putting the baby in a room with windows and opening all the curtains/shades.

Did your baby get a bilirubin test to see how high his/ her levels are? My little guy had jaundice in the hospital, so he was put under the phototherapy lights for a day. The ladies here are right, any sunlight works great inside or out. I dont think there is anything called too much sun.

Sunlight thru a window is great. Make sure the room is warm then strip the little one down leaving the diaper on and place in the light for 10mins or more. You should laso call the doctor...baby's blood work may have to be done. Also are you breatfeeding? Most hospitals reccomend formula even for breatfeed babies as it helps clear the jandice faster. Even 1-2 feedings of formula a day will help...don't worry about nipple confusion your better off taking care of the jaundice. Babies with jaundice often sleep mare so be sure that the feedings are done even if he/she is sound asleep. Follow up with the doctor!

Indirect sunlight, especially if baby is fair-skinned. Alexia was on phototherapy for 1 day as well.

My daughter had gaundis when she was born her doc told me no more than 10 min on each side I found a window in my house that got alot of light during the day and just layed her on a blanket in the light . You want to make sure your baby eats alot try to feed every hour ( if he/she wants to of course) because you want them to poop alot it will clear the gaundis out.
