We got the results of Babes bilirubin test just before bed time last night. Since she was over 38 weeks gestation when she was born, 14.6 at 60 hours is ok (16.6 would be mandatory hospitalization for light therapy). Becky said we should keep her in indirect sunlight and nurse her as much as possible to get her bilirubin levels down and that’s just what we did! Now we’re back at the birth center to see if her levels are going up or (hopefully) down.
