Because of cold weather and weakened immune systems many people are more susceptible to getting sick during the winter. However, Jaundice in newborns is not anymore likely to occur during the winter months.
Jaundice affects nearly half of all babies born in the United States, but because it can be treated with the healing power of phototherapy, many babies are healed within the first week to two weeks after birth.
Even though Jaundice is not more likely to occur during the winter, the natural way to treat it is with sunlight which works by converting bilirubin into a compound that is more easily broken down and excreted by the body.
Since winter is short of sunny days and warm weather for your baby to enjoy, a biliblanket is your best treatment for delivering the power of the sun in a warm, comforting blanket. The phototherapy light within the blanket acts as the sun would, helping to convert the bilirubin so that it can be removed from the body. The blanket itself acts as cozy medium to both wrap and comfort your newborn.
Some of the signs of Jaundice include yellowing skin and eyes, weight loss, reluctance to eat, and fluctuating body temperature. If your baby is experiencing any of these symptoms we advise that you take them to a doctor to get their bilirubin levels tested immediately.
If your baby does have jaundice, ask your doctor to order your biliblanket from Aeroflow. We will take care of the billing through your insurance, deliver the blanket to you as quickly as possible, and follow up post delivery to ensure quality in both the product and our service.
