  • Jaundice 101

    Most infants (50-70%) develop jaundice in the first weeks of life. If your baby has jaundice, he may have yellow-tinted skin or eyes. The yellow color is the result of too much bilirubin in your baby’s blood; bilirubin is a brownish - yellow color. Typically parents notice yellowing in the face and eyes in the first 2-4 days of life; the yellowing starts in the face and moves down to the toes. Bilirubin levels typically peak between 3 to 7 days after birth.

The prevalence of peanut allergy has tripled from .4% in 1994 to 1.4% in 2010 and 2.5% in 2017. Approximately 20% outgrow their allergies after adolescence.
