Who Are We?
Thousands of newborns experience infant jaundice which generally occurs at birth or within their first week. The recommended treatment for newborn jaundice is to expose the baby to phototherapy. Phototherapy consists of shining light onto the skin where the illumination breaks down the excess bilirubin, thereby decreasing its level.
Today, phototherapy treatment can be done at the comfort of your home. At Cradle n Care, we provide the GE Lullaby LED Phototherapy System for at-home use.
We believe your baby deserve the best. Hence, we take extra care to ensure our equipment is purchased brand new, carefully cleaned & safely checked before we deliver them to your doorstep.

What is jaundice?
Jaundice, a very common condition in new-borns, often seen as yellow colour of the skin and whites of the eyes that happens when there is too much bilirubin in the blood.
When will you find out?
Jaundice first appear when new-borns are 2 to 4 days old. This is because the liver, which removes bilirubin from the baby’s body, is not ready to do this job yet. Generally this is not a problem and will go away within 2 weeks.
Ways of treatment?
Phototherapy is the primary treatment. By administrating light waves, it will remove bilirubin in the blood through absorption into the baby's skin and blood, thus changing bilirubin into waste products.
