Little Zorro

Backdated post....sorry busy pumping milk and uruting :P

Look at my little zorro boy. hahah When you removed the eye mask, you can see the mask lines and also the eye part is more yellow compared to the rest of body. And you can see how he rested his leg on the side of the machine..haha

When we left the hospital that day his jaundice level was only 101. Proly due to my ginger intake, the jaundice level went up to 219 when we went for his first week check up. Since, it's pointless for us to admit into the hospital, doctor recommended us to rent the phototheraphy machine home and do it in our own house.(contact here)

This is how it looked like. Poor boy....he will cry whenever you put the eye mask on him, as if he know that he is going into the machine again. I must say, it's heart breaking to see him shiver a lil and hearing him cry. It's my first time, cos Jayden don't have to stay in the phototherapy the last time.

Of course, at the same time I totally stopped eating ginger, beans, and rice wine. So I had 3 days of ginger-less food. And then we went for another round of check up and his jaundice level went down to 130. *Phew* Doc then recommended us to bring him out for morning sun to bring it even lower. So now, he's a-okay and I'm glad we can do the treatment at home, and I can still bf him, smell him and cuddle him. :)

    my 2nd girl was hospitalised for jaundice and i stayed with her in the hospital for 3 days. it breaks my heart seeing shivers. the nurses told me they cant do anything bout the air-cond there!

    good that you can afford to rent the machine and do it at home. ;)

  5. Oh, i didn't know we could rent the phototheraphy machine home!! Also, the doc is so nice to recommend the rental of the machine!!

    My poor baby admitted to the hosp twice for jaundice. The jaundice level still high even though i stopped taking ginger and etc during confinement. My baby stayed at the hosp for 4 nights and it cost us RM1200!!

    Thanks for sharing the info,Sasha. I'll take note on this if my future ones need it :)

  10. You did the right thing. After stop ginger and Chinese herbs, it will surely bring down the level (if bb has breastmilk jaundice).

    Glad Little Zorro is ok now...

  18. poor baby,glad to hear that he is ok now..
    last time my doctor told me ginger won't cause the jaundice one, but for the baby sake, i didn't take ginger too.

  19. poor justin, i know how you felt coz we had that too and i stayed at the hospital with the girl coz of bfg. but i don't remember the girl shivering though coz the nurse covered the whole thing with a white cloth so she doesn't get any breeze. i was worried she will catch a cold and the nurse assured me that the light is like a heater itself.

    and like u, i totally stopped eating ginger too, in fact, very little throughout my confinement. i'd rather suffer than see my baby suffer.

  20. The machine is godsend. Last time my boy's jaundice shot up too around 7th day. I was crying as I couldn't bear parting with him if he needs to be admitted. Luckily his level was okay. We only need to sunbath him. :@

  22. It is just so convenient if we choose that rather than staying in hospital, really save a lot.

    Glad that Justin is ok now.

  23. hi there Sasha,

    You might wonder who am I, right? Been reading your blog as an anoymous reader without leaving any comments. Silence reading lah.

    Your little boy is cute and same goes with your big boy too. Your little one has the same name has my 2nd. But he is already 1 1/2years old turning 2 soon.

  28. Poor thing. Charlotte's Jaundice was not so bad. It's about 4.1. Maybe because I had a lot of vege when preggy. She pooed so many times in a day. By the time she goes for her check up, she doesn't look yellowish.
