For mild jaundice, more frequent feeding or exposing the baby to filtered sunlight at home may be useful. If additional fluids are needed, offer 1-2 ounces of formula after nursing two to three times per day. If you have any concerns about your baby's yellow appearance, call our advice nurse. The advice nurse may recommend an office visit and/or a bilirubin blood test.
