  1. photo therapy is necessary if it is not relieve by it self.

  2. We see a lot of these in Home Care- babies are sent home so soon and then they find out a week later they have hyperbilirubinemia. So we go in and provide the kangaroo light and check their bilirubin daily until it comes down- or just stick in the sun if you don’t have good insurance :9)

  3. My son had this and we have to constantly monitor his feeding for 3 days. It was horrible being inside that incubator and in the phototherapy
