Mother has type a+ blood, baby had type o+ blood... Blood mixed during birth. Can this result in ABO incompatibility? Baby didn't have any jaundice.

Mother has type a+ blood, baby had type o+ blood... Blood mixed during birth. Can this result in ABO incompatibility? Baby didn't have any jaundice.

It is mostly in moms with an rh neg cell that gets infused with rh pos blood. ...Read more

I take excess of belching after eating and sometimes in early morning with empty stomach. This problem I facing from 11 months after jaundice.?

Belching: It sounds to me that the valve that stays between your esophagus and stomach may not be working well. There may be inflammation going on in it. It looks like you've been on dromperidone and pantaprazole. Wonder if those have helped. If they've not, the next step would be upper endoscopy (egd). ...Read more

My 1-year-old daughter has had 2-3 whitish/gray stools in the last 2-3 days. No jaundice, eating normally, normal energy, no apparent distress. ER?

Stool color: Stool color can mean a lot if it is persistent. Stool color changes are most often due to diet changes or eating "other" stuff. If your daughter is otherwise healthy I believe you can wait this one out. If you have suspicion of ingesting something inappropriate then the ER. If she has a liver infection as you seem to be thinking the stool will stay pale for longer. ...Read more
