My 1 month baby boy has bilirubin range 11.50 mg/dll. Im worried about him. Plz suggest me what to do.
Yes and no: Three times in a day doesn't sound like an illness as much as it may be baby clearing his/her airway. Babies are quite sensitive to smoke/ dust/fragrances/ cleaning odors/etc. and may become congested and or cough in response.

My newborn grandson has bilirubin of 11 from 8 also had cephaluc hematoma. He is a big baby 9'12 and 20 inches. Is there any thing to watch for?

Monitoring & treatment as needed prevents jaundice from becoming a problem. ...Read more

My newborn is 2 days old, upon birth her bilirubin was a 2, it increased to a 5, and today it is an 11. How concerned should I be?
Sounds pretty normal: When the cord is clamped, baby looses mom's help cleansing it's blood & that shows up as some expected increase in the bilirubin level in the first few days. It commonly peaks around day 3-4 & declines as the babies system speeds the process. I take notice for levels above 12-14 at 2 days but consider a 11 pretty normal. I don't hold a discharge at that level. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
