"Bili" blanket Teresa

On the second evening, Teresa was diagnosed with jaundice. The doctors prescribed the bili-blanket, which was a new tool at that hospital. The light breaks down unconjugated bilirubin in the blood while the baby is allowed to remain in the mother's room. Thankfully, the bilirubin levels decreased and Teresa was cleared to go home on Monday without any further complications.
