With the excitement of introducing a new bundle of joy into their lives, many parents feel compelled to post several images of their newborn baby on social media. One father was playing with his little daughter when she created a humorous facial expression that he considered quite adorable. So, he decided to share it with everyone.
Numerous others took the time to remark on how adorable she is. One commenter wrote, «She will be a rebel and marry a tattoo-free, penniless man.» The father enjoyed his friends’ humorous quips until he encountered one that made his blood run cold. «Do her eyes seem a little yellow? It seems that way to me, but it’s difficult to tell since the whole image is somewhat yellow!
Perhaps nothing, but possibly newborn jaundice. See a doctor if her skin and eyes are yellow. «I am a paranoid pediatrician,» the statement said. The father hurried his daughter to the hospital out of concern. The physician was correct.
The doctor treated the infant’s jaundice, therefore saving her life. Jaundice, characterized by yellowing of the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes, is common in young infants. Hepatitis, gallstones, and tumors may occur from untreated hepatitis.
