I noticed yellow patches on my daughter's
eyes 2 days after she was born but the nurses said I should continue breasting her and she'll be fine. She's 3 weeks today and the yellow
patches are still there. I was at the teaching hospital today and they tested for her bilirubin level... It read 11.2 and I was told to go home and continue breastfeeding. She's doing very well except for the yellow patches on the eyes. Please what else should I do?
Since you have been to the teaching hospital and you are asked to breastfeed exclusively please follow that instruction. But if you are still worried kindly see a second pediatrician.
