breast milk jaunice is a benign condition...can it lead to kernicterus_? it neccessary to stop breast milk for a days_?
Expert Answer :
Breast milk jaundice can never cause kernicterus as per the EVIDENCE so far.....but it is a diagnosis of exclusion - you should have excluded many other possible causes including G6PD def, Urine infection etc.....when you have ruled out all other causes - then you can continue - NO need to stop breast feeding.

It is not necesssry, it will resolve itself by helping through sun exposure, if weather permits. If levels increase beyond security figures, it is due to other factors rather than breastfeeding and you should look into.
