Sunbathing, Reducing Jaundice In Babies
At the beginning of the birth of a baby, most will experience jaundice. This is caused by increased yellow pigment in the blood, called bilirubin. Newborn liver has not worked well, so it can not handle this excess bilirubin. This makes the yellow pigment is settled in the skin, and reflects the color yellow for three to four days at the beginning of birth.
This is a normal jaundice, do not panic if your baby has it. Some ways to minimize the presence of yellow pigment is to give as much breastmilk as possible, the calories contained in breastmilk helps to cleanse the body of excess bilirubin in the system. Be diligent for Sunbathing baby at the time of the morning, around 7-8 hours of the morning, approximately 5-10 minutes, and do not be too long, considering the baby's skin is still sensitive and fears can be burned by exposure to sunlight. Before drying, apply a special Handbody baby on the body.
When Sunbathing, expose the body of the baby. Do it for a week in a row since the beginning of the birth. Sunlight is believed to break down bilirubin in the skin so that the yellow pigment will fade. It could also provide breastmilk during drying, or after drying. Breastfeed as much as possible after drying to avoid dehydration, besides being a panacea for this jaundice.
If the jaundice is not disappear within 3-4 days after drying activity before, immediately see a doctor to check more details about other causes of jaundice.
