Jaundice occurs when there is a high level of bilirubin in the baby's
blood. This yellow substance is created when the body creates new red
blood cells, replacing old ones. Normally the liver is able to break down
bilirubin, removing it from the body. However, when the liver is unable
to complete this process, the high level of bilirubin can cause the baby's
skin and eyes to yellow. While most cases of jaundice go away on their
own, it is recommended that you seek medical care from a pediatrician.
