The joy of welcoming a baby into their lives prompts many parents to take and share numerous photos of their newborn on social media.
One day, a father was playing with his little daughter when she made a funny face that he found adorable.
Wanting his friends and family to see it too, he posted the picture online.
Many internet users found it really cute and took the time to comment about it.
One user wrote, “She’s going to be rebellious and marry a man with no money and no tattoos.” The father found his friends’ remarks amusing, until he came across a comment that sent shivers down his spine: “Are her eyes a bit yellow? It seems so, but it’s hard to tell because the whole picture has a yellowish tint!”
There might be nothing wrong, but it could be neonatal jaundice.
If her skin and eyes are yellow, consult a specialist. “I’m a pediatrician,” indicated the comment.
The father was so worried that he quickly drove his daughter to the clinic. The doctor was right.
The specialist saved the child’s life by treating her jaundice.
Jaundice, which manifests as a yellowing of the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes, is common in young children.
If left untreated, it can lead to hepatitis, gallstones, and tumors.
