My first child was born with no problems at all. My second child had to have a complet blood transfusion to reduce the bilirubin. It was successful. My third child had to have two of these transfusions to save his life as his bilirubin would not come down. The transfusion is done through the babies naval. All my children are now healthy and grown. They say it is because of blood imcompatability between my husband and myself. He is A= I am O-. What is interesting now, within a few hours of the first child being born, the mother is given an antibody injection, therefor alleviating any chance of blood transfusions. Amazing how technology improves.

my eldest child's blood type is AB. she had yellow spots on her skin when she was born, which is due to blood incompatibility of my A type blood, and her father's AB. there's no blood transfusion but she was under the flourescent lights for at least a day and when she went home she had to be injected for 7 days of antibodies.
