is this possible? ds had a bilirubin count of 10 at 2 weeks old, and has been slightly yellow still.  but today, its looking more yellow.  hes normal and gaining a ton but i wonder if the level could increase past 2 weeks?  hes also pooping much less since 1 month old.  which is normal though....should his levels be checked again?

thank you, yes, i caled our ped the other day and he said it doesnt usually go back up once coming down, and he made me feel better about it not being serious based on certain factors.  we have our 2 month check in a week, so we'll see then.  ive just never dealt with jaundice that lasts this long, im so over it!:)
