DS is almost 7 weeks old. He developed mild jaundice after coming home from hospital, at about the 5 day point. He is still mildly yellow in his face and eyes, and his last bilirubin test 2 weeks ago was 10.8 mg/dl. He is otherwise healthy, eats well, puts on weight, and is doing everything he should be doing at this stage. The pedi says it's probably breastmilk jaundice and to try a 48 hour trial of formula to tell for sure.
I'm scared that 48 hours without breastfeeding is going to mess with supply and cause nipple confusion. This is my second baby, but I've never had to pump or give bottles with either child. Everything I've read says that breastmilk jaundice resolves on its own and a 48hour formula trial is not necessary.
Does anyone have experience with breastmilk jaundice? What did you do? TIA!
