Yellow Skin

The skin turns yellow around 9-12 months old.  This is Vitamin A and we call it Carotenemia.  Carotene is the pigment in yellow vegetables.  it is not an excessive amount but the normal amount causes the skin to turn yellow.  This is not jaundice since the white of their eyes is not yellow.  Just ignore it and it will go away.
