Baby Jaundice

Baby Jaundice

It is not uncommon for new born babies to become jaundiced at birth. Jaundice does not necessarily mean a baby is ill but if it does not disappear normally (within 14 days for full term babies and 21 days for pre-term babies) it should be investigated. The CLDF Yellow Alert Campaign supports, informs and educates parents, carers and health professionals in the UK on the signs and symptoms of prolonged jaundice in newborn babies, promoting early diagnosis and appropriate referral for liver disease.
