My Confinement Routine & Diary :
Widad day 5 and confirmed jaundice.I went to KK Bangi to checked her jaundice level and immediately the doctor referred Widad to Hosp Serdang. Her jaundice level was 16 and admitted at NICU for 2 days. 2days stayed at NICU really give me a very a new experience. I saw various of babies with various cases of illnesses. Ader yg berselirat with tube, ader yg dok dlm incubator, ader yg helplessly non-stop crying. ader yg kena jaundice sampai kena blood transfusion. mmg sgt sedih and thanks Allah Widad only jaundice with 2 photo therapy light
Widad jaundice symptoms; its likely breastfeeding jaundice
- Yellowish eyes and yellow spot on her skin when i press a finger against her skin
- She did not poop from day 2 until day 5. Diaper change for wee wee 5 – 6 times daily. Its not sufficient to get rid the bilirubin from her body.
- Most of the time she would sleep and i need to wake her up for feeding (poor feeding pattern). Sometimes she just laid my breast inside her mouth and she fall asleep. Sleeping beauty that worry mummy a lot
- Myself getting better in term of sufficient rest and energy
