My niece is one week old and has severe jaundice, was under the lights at the hospital and IV. Now home and went back to test level and found out she has cystic fibrosis. She is lethargic and can't seem to keep her awake to breastfeed. What symptoms should we be looking for? What can be done for the cystic fibrosis?
