Hey consult your doctor if any doubts as the baby is too small... And if the reports are fine then keep in the sunlight for a month atleast ....the baby will be fine soon ..take care ..

For my baby,it took nearly a month for the eye color to change completely. Keep in sunlight without fail till then.Baby will be absolutely fine!Don't worry!

Hi Anon,if its mild jaundice,usually it takes about a month to completely get rid of yellowness as its a cycle which settles by 30 days after the bilrubin level gets to it peak in about 15 to 20 days. Usually bilrubin level should be below 14,but even if its around that,the eyes will appear yellow. If you think,its a lot then do get it checked by a paed to rule out any further treatment requirement! Hope ur lo gets well soon!
