4 Types of Neonatal or Newborn Jaundice

 

Pediatric Doctors strongly recommending that all infants, especially LBW babies be checked for jaundice within 1 to 4 days of their birth. Jaundice is a common condition in newborns and can be treated well with the help of many NICU equipment, respective treatments, and facilities. The different types of jaundice are,

Normal (Physiological) Jaundice: As the newborn’s liver is still maturing, it may often appears within 2 to 4 days and disappears by 1 to 2 weeks.

LBW Jaundice (Prematurity): Their bodies are not much ready to discharge bilirubin effectively – they’ll be treated for required bilirubin levels.

Breastfeeding Jaundice: This kind of Jaundice happen when babies don’t get enough breast milk due to difficulty with breastfeeding or because the mother’s milk isn’t in yet.

Blood Group Mismatch Jaundice (RH/ABO): Either if the parents don’t have the same Rh Factor or when mother & child  have different blood types, the mother’s body might produce antibodies that destroy the infant’s red blood cells. This creates a sudden buildup of bilirubin in the baby’s blood.
