Gilbert's syndrome: It is not uncommon for babies without gilbert's syndrome to be born with temporary jaundice that is not harmful as it clears as soon as the liver function becomes more efficient. Gilbert's syndrome usually manifests it self a little later in life and is also harmless. I don't know if your jaundice at birth was the former or the latter, but either way you should be fine.
