Message length 300 characters recommended

Both of my babies developed jaundice in their first days of life. For my son, he wasn't getting enough breastmilk, so my doctor recommended supplementing him until the jaundice went away. This worked and it went away completely within a week.

My daughter also had jaundice, but it did not go away as quickly. It took about three weeks for it to completely leave her body.
