Baby was kept in a fancy glass box with UV bulbs in it. She had to wear an eye band so she wouldn't look at the bulbs directly. It was to be placed on her eyes and held in place using her cap. She hated it and kept trying to remove it. Poor baby. They stuck a thermistor sort of thing on her body to keep her body temperature under check. She kept pulling it out too. Sometimes we pulled it out by mistake while taking her in and out for feeding. The glass box with baby inside it looked like a alien lab set up for experimentation. Wonder what she felt being blinded and kept in a box with things sticking out of her. Sure must have been nightmarish for her.
After exactly 24 hrs, her bilirubin count came down enough for her to be set free from the box. Her skin and eyes remained slightly yellowish for next one week. Slowly it all went away.
