What are herbs/food to avoid for a BF mother whose baby has jaundice? Is it a myth that ginger aggregates/ delays the recovery of neonatal jaundice in BF babies?

The whole ginger and jaundice issue is actually a myth and I don't think there's any thing scientific regarding it. A lot of babies get jaundice in their first few days, because their liver is immature. whether or not the mother consumes ginger. It has more to do to with the liver than food consumption, I think.

Same sentiments but if you watched the video, the gynae suggested to eliminate ginger from the confinement food if baby has elevated jaundice levels.
