So my little babe is a little orange punkin–the poor thing is quite jaundiced. It seems that we avoided one blood incompatibility (we’re both Rh -) for another (I’m type O while babe is type A). Babies whose mothers have type O blood tend to have more problems with jaundice. Our little guy has been monitored from birth and was borderline for treatment, but today the bilirubin was enough to warrant phototherapy. Luckily they were able to arrange home treatment so now my little love bug is sleeping on the light. A nurse will stop by daily to check his blood and hopefully soon this will pass.
