Jaundice
Most jaundice in babies is not harmful; however, it is important to check your
baby for any signs of yellow colouring particularly during the first week of life.
The yellow colour will usually appear around the face & forehead first & then
spread to the body, arms & legs. A good time to check is when you are changing
a nappy or clothes.
