Okay, while at the hospital after Henry's birth, the nurse constantly made comments about how she thought he had jaundiced. His blood tests came back with normal levels (I believe 5.4) and we were given the all clear. At his three day check up he was given the all clear again...
The past few days people have made various comments on the darkness of his skin/complexion compared to my husband and myself. And his eyes have been a bit yellowish since the day he was born, i can;t neccessarily say that they are any more so now than last week.
Anyways, now everyone has me worrying.
I am exclusively breastfeeding. He has been eating every couple of hours (usually about fifteen minutes or so in length). He has MORE than enough poopy/wet diapers.
I have never had experience with jaundice, so I don't know if I am being paranoid or not. I am adding a pic so other mommies can give me their input.
He doesn't have any sort of temperature, I don't think he is sleepier than any other baby his age....I really don't want to be the paranoid mommy here. Any thoughts ladies?
I will have my internet back by Tuesday and will be able to catch up on everyone's stories soon, can't wait!!
