Dad Uploaded A Photo Of His Newborn Daughter To The Internet, Which Saved Her Life.

With the joy of welcoming a bundle of joy in their lives, many parents feel the urge to take and share plenty of photos of their newborn baby on the social media.One dad was playing with his baby girl when she made this funny face expression that he found really cute. Wanting his friends and family to see it, too, he posted it online.

A lot of people found it cute beyond words and took their time to comment on it. One person wrote, “She’s going to be a rebel and marry a penniless guy without tattoos.” The dad loved his friends’ funny remarks until he came across a comment that made his blood run cold.“Are her eyes a little yellow? It looks like it to me, but it’s hard to tell, because the entire photo is a little yellow!

Maybe nothing, but it could be neonatal jaundice. If her skin and eyes are yellow, see a doctor. “I’m a paranoid children’s doctor,” the comment said. The father was so worried he rushed his daughter to the hospital. The doctor was correct.

The doctor saved the baby’s life by treating her jaundice. Jaundice, in which the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes turn yellow, is common in young children. Untreated, hepatitis, gallstones, and tumors can result.
