Adam masuk wad semula. Jaundice at level 24.1, again.
Do you know how i feel?
I do not know where things go wrong. Pls Allah help me. Nikmat jaga anak, sesuatu yg semua parents akan rasa. Benar itu satu tanggungjawab, itu juga satu nikmat.
Feeding, stool, urine, sleeping pttern, weight gain, semua OK!
Aku sampai tanya, “Dr, is there something in my breastmilk tht caused the baby like this?”
doktor kata tak. some babies akan jaundice disebabkan oleh breastmilk, called breastmilk jaundice. mother should continue breastfeed it is not a reason to stop feeding the baby. Tp setahu dia, kalau breastmilk jaundice level dlm lingkungan 8-10 je.
Aku terdengar2 suara Adam merengek nak menyusu.
Dada aku sakit.
this is something i found (source)
Breast milk Jaundice is a diagnosis of exclusion. Child must be well, gaining weight appropriately, breast-feeds well and stool is yellow. Management is to continue breast-feeding. There is a need to tell the parents that the jaundice is likely due to BM but it is usually of no harm and conversely may confer benefit as bilirubin is a strong anti-oxidant. Rarely, if the SB is too high (i.e. 25 mg%) then withdrawal of BM for 48 hours may be appropriate after which breast-feeding should continue. In the meantime the mother should express her milk to ensure her supply does not diminish.
