i need help. my baby is 6 days old and i have noticed some swelling on her feet. is this serious and if so what can i do. please help

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

Babies often retain extra fluid soon after birth, so this kind of swelling is usually only for a short time.If the swelling persists after another 2 weeks ask your paediatrician.
