The yellow colour on the skin and eyes in the newborn is called newborn jaundice, which is common and usually harmless. It develops often 2 days after birth and it must be ruled out during the newborn physical examination. However, in a small number of babies, being jaundiced can be due to a more serious underlying condition that needs to be assessed and urgently determined if treatment is needed as there could be a risk for brain damage. An early assessment and adequate support to the family is crucial to protect the breastfeeding dyad. Learn more about the risk factors and clinical features observed with neonatal jaundice and the current guidelines for treatment.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Describe the risk factors and clinical features observed in neonatal jaundice.
Objective 2: List different signs and symptoms that can accompany neonatal jaundice and may indicate severe jaundice or complications.
