my mea also got jaundice. 12 days old only but kena poke at the heel 3 times already. heart pain to hear her cry each time. her jaundice level is still the same the last time we went to polyclinic (friday). must go back there tomorrow again to do the 4th blood test. Sigh....am beginning to wonder whether I should stop feeding her breastmilk and switch to FM for awhile. Was told by pediatrician at Thomson Medical Center breastmilk can make jaundice worse.
her skin is also peeling really bad. i tried putting organic olive oil and johnson's baby lotion but still no difference. Was told by polyclinic doctor that overdue babies (40 weeks above) tend to get more peeling skin than babies born earlier. Mea was born at 37 weeks, its puzzling why her skin peels badly all over.
