Almost every baby born goes through at least some jaundice. It is not in itself a concern unless levels reach extreme heights.

The best way to help baby pass the jaundice is to take her outside and have as much skin exposed as possible, taking in account for the weather and temperature in your area.

If you are concerned about your baby's health, or worry something may be "off", you should always consult a medical professional.
