Pitocin and Jaundice Poll - Page 4

post #61 of 66
Pitocin for my son's delivery, no jaundice.

Had pitocin (I think they really cranked it up too) and baby had slight jaundice, nothing that needed to be treated. We were also told that his blood type is more susceptible to jaundice.

Completely unmedicated/drug-free childbirth and my babe had normal newborn jaundice. In my experience, it doesn't make a difference. Newborn jaundice is a result of immature livers not processing the bilirubin. Some babies are born with more mature livers than others. I think if you took a poll about early arrivals and newborn jaundice, you would probably find a correlation.

preg with second...but tons of pitocin with first, baby was SERIOUSLY yellow. the doctor said it was fine but I had my doubts even then. but he is okay now (age 12). then I recently read somewhere that breastfed babies tend to jaundice which no one told me just so I wouldnt worry.

I had Pit for 7 hours, and no jaundice, In fact, her bilirubin levels were really really low, like a 2. HTH.

#1 - Pitocin, no jaundice, bfing problems and had to supplement for the first month
#2 ~ no Pitocin, mild jaundice that cleared on it's own in a couple of weeks, no bfing problems
#3 ~ homebirth, jaundice that finally just cleared at 9 weeks but was never bad enough for bili-lights or anything like that, no bfing problems
