Is neonatal jaundice more related to mother? If these two reasons cause, my mother will not be wronged

The pregnant mother has type O blood, and the newborn has hemolytic jaundice

If the novice mother has blood type O and her husband has blood types A, B, and AB, the baby is likely to have hemolysis of the newborn, which is ABO blood group incompatibility hemolysis. In the case of hemolysis, newborns are prone to hemolytic jaundice, and the onset is early, mostly 3-5 days after birth. In this case, if the symptoms are mild, you can first treat with blue light. If the condition of jaundice is severe, the unconjugated bilirubin in the newborn's serum is close to or reaches 342 ╬╝mol/L, and there is a serious abnormality of the mental system, it is necessary to perform blood transfusion treatment. Therefore, this hemolytic jaundice is related to the mother's blood type O. Therefore, it is recommended that mothers with blood type O should pay more attention before giving birth, and observe the baby's changes closely after giving birth, so that timely treatment when jaundice occurs.

Postpartum breastfeeding, neonates with breast milk jaundice

In addition, novice mothers who breastfeed after birth should also pay attention. If yellowing of the skin, mucous membranes, and sclera occurs and the jaundice continues to worsen 4-5 days after the baby is born, but there are no other abnormalities, it is necessary to consider breast milk jaundice. The specific method of judgment is that first, after 48 hours of breastfeeding, check whether the baby's bilirubin has dropped by half. In addition, if breastfeeding again, bilirubin will increase a little, but it will not increase too much. If this is the case, it can basically be diagnosed as breast milk jaundice.

From a medical point of view, this is mainly due to the increased content of glucuronidase in the small intestine of the newborn, leading to abnormal bilirubin metabolism. The enzyme in newborns is mainly derived from breast milk, so it is breast milk jaundice. In this case, it is not recommended to stop breast milk if the jaundice value does not exceed the pathological value. Qin feeding can also promote yellowing. If the pathological value is exceeded, the mother stops breastfeeding for some time and cooperates with the doctor to treat the baby. Under normal circumstances, as long as the treatment is good, the newborn will soon get better.

Therefore, if the newborn is jaundice due to these two reasons, then the mother will not be wronged, and good help for the baby is the key.
