jaundice :'(

So my son was born on the 12th he was two days early we ended up staying two days in the hospital and his bilirubin levels were a little high but they were not concerned at the time well they kept going up still they sent us home when his levels were 14 we came back the next day for a follow up and they were at 21 so they put him under bili lights at eight in the morning by three that afternoon they were down to 18 he was ok through the night and they checked his levels again at six in the morning it was down to 13 they said they would be back around four tp check again and if they go down more he might b able to get out from under the lights...its so hard cause i can't hold him or cuddle him or anything besides feeding him nd changing him i cried so much yesterday i can't stand it seeing my baby cry and i can't even hold him nd cuddle him to make him stop :( i can only rub his back it is terrible :( I just wanna take him home so i can take him in my arms and snuggle him when he wants his mama
