When you have a child, you can feel yourself like you're up in the clouds. We can't stop looking at the little ones, not just to control them, but because they are so cute that it is impossible not to fall in love with them.
In this era of technology and social media, especially when you're a first-time parent, it's common that they fill their social media with pictures of the newborn, something that can annoy a few, but for other people it can be sweet.
But this dad couldn't imagine that after posting this picture, his
daughter's health would improve.
The proud father published a picture of his daughter just before she got her first bath and a paediatrician that was checking the social media around that time, saw the picture.
The paediatrician immediately detected something strange in the little girl, so he sent a message to the father to let him know that her eyes were a little yellow.
However, the paediatrician said that he's a little bit paranoid and
that it may not be anything serious, but he also said that if his daughter
had a yellowish color of her skin and eyes, he would take her to a doctor
because it could be jaundice.
Jaundice or icteric is a disease that makes skin, eyes, tissues and the body's fluids turn yellow. This is common among newborn babies, and the cause is a high level of bilirubin. However, it just requires a lot of hydration with breastmilk and sun baths.
Now, although it could be harmless, it must be treated in time to avoid higher risks such as brain paralysis or deafness. The best for these cases is to submit the baby for a medical exam.
The father texted the doctor again after a few days, thanking him for the advice. His daughter effectively had an advanced icteric, and thanks to the paediatrician, they could treat her in time. Now the baby is healthy and happy with her parents.
This is why the social media can be really helpful sometimes.
