Dad Posted This Photo Of His Daughter And It Saved Her Life

 As new parents we enjoy taking pictures of us and our little babies. But when this father took a funny photo of his daughter he had no idea he was about to save her life…

As he took a photo of his daughter on her first bath, he found her expression funny and posted the photo online.

Comments came flooding like the Nile. A lot of people made funny remarks like “she’s going to be a rebel and marry a penniless guy without tattoos,” there was one comment from a children’s doctor that got the father’s full attention:

“Are her eyes a little yellow? It looks like it to me, but it’s hard to tell, because the entire photo is a little yellow. It’s probably nothing, but it could be a symptom for neonatal jaundice. If her skin and eyes actually look a little yellow, then maybe you should get it checked out. I’m a paranoid children’s doctor, hence my concern.”

The dad took this comment to heart and took his daughter immediately to the doctor. The paranoid comment of the doctor was confirmed: his newborn had jaundice and the doctor probably saved her life with that one frightening comment.

Even though jaundice can be common in small children, if it is left untreated, it is potentially deadly or can cause severe brain damage. While many people find it useless to post and read comments online, this time it saved a life! Kudos to the careful doctor. We definitely need more caring people like him.

10 Ways to Clean Yellow Teeth Naturally


Having detailed some of the causes of tooth discoloration, as well as the differences between intrinsic and extrinsic stains, let’s turn our attention toward prevention and treatment. To avoid tooth discoloration, it is a good idea to avoid smoking and also the foods and drinks that contribute to the problem in the first place. To further reduce the likelihood of teeth yellowing, you should practice good oral hygiene and be seen by a dentist at least once a year.


The combination of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda, when used as a paste, is almost comparable to professional whitening treatments in that it breaks up plaque and bacteria that can cause tooth stains. Most people who have used this hydrogen and peroxide to brighten their smiles noticed a significant improvement in as little as six weeks. The combination is so effective that many manufacturers have added it to several of their best-selling toothpaste brands. Here are a few tips to help get you started:Combine 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide
Mix the two ingredients until you formed a paste
Brush for 2 to 3 minutes

As a side note, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda is also a great mouth wash. For best results, mix the same ratio of ingredients and rinse after brushing.


Activated charcoal is also great at removing stains, bacteria, and toxins that typically lead to yellow teeth. You can find activated charcoal in most pharmacies and big-box stores. However, it may not work for everyone, especially those with sensitive tooth sensitivity as the charcoal may be too abrasive. Nonetheless, if you are interested in trying activated charcoal, here are a few helpful tips:Place a toothpaste-sized amount of activated charcoal on a toothbrush.
Gently brush in a circular motion for a minimum of 2 minutes.
While this is optional, consider mixing activated charcoal with water as the combination can be used as a mouth rinse.

Although activated charcoal is effective in whitening yellow teeth, the charcoal powder can embed in the small crevices and in the gum line. That said, make sure you rinse thoroughly your mouth with plain water after using this product.


Apple cider vinegar is also an effective way of resolving tooth discoloration. To whiten yellow teeth with apple cider vinegar, it is a good idea to use it as a mouth rinse before brushing. For best results, dilute 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in 5 ounces of water and vigorously swish the liquid in your mouth for 20 to 30 seconds. The reason why apple cider vinegar is so effective is that it contains natural bleaching agents that work to breakdown stains caused by coffee, wine, and tobacco products.


Coconut oil pulling is an effective way to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from the oral cavity. It has also been shown to be effective in reducing gingivitis as well. For best results, swish 1 or 2 teaspoons of coconut oil in your mouth for a minimum of 10 minutes before brushing. For those who are not a fan of coconut oil, sesame oil and sunflower oil are just as effective.


Eating fruits that contain a high percentage of water like oranges, grapes, and watermelon, for example, can help. Fruit can wash away plaque, food particles, and bacteria that often lead to yellowing and other types of discoloration.


Although it may sound peculiar, fruit peels derived from lemons, oranges, or bananas can help brighten your smile. The peels from these fruits contain d-limonene, which is a compound used to treat a number of health problems like cancer and bronchitis, for example. However, fruit peels are also used to whiten discolored or yellow teeth. Similar to hydrogen peroxide and baking soda, many manufacturers have added d-limonene to many toothpaste brands. For best results, rub a fruit peel on your teeth for a minimum of 2 minutes. After you’re done, however, make sure to rinse your mouth out thoroughly with water as the acid from fruit peels can erode tooth enamel, which, in effect, resolves one problem and creates another one.


Similar to fruit, eating crunchy vegetables like celery and raw carrots can be a great way to remove plaque and bacteria build up that causes stains and discoloration.


Over-the-counter whitening kits are a viable alternative to professional whitening done at your dentist office, and they are more cost-effective, averaging $10 to $50 for most kits. That said, over-the-counter whitening kits are available in gel, strips, trays, and toothpaste form.


Brushing and flossing can help ensure your oral health and also prevent tooth discoloration. However, there is a right and wrong way to go about brushing. It is important to use circular motions as this minimize gum irritation and leads to a better overall clean. Lastly, you should brush at least twice per day for a minimum of two minutes.


While age and lifestyle can play role in tooth discoloration, there are instances where such problems may signify a dental problem. The best to catch problems early and keep a bright, beautiful smile is by seeing your dentist at least once per year.


If plaque, bacteria, and tartar are not removed early, severe dental problems may develop. In fact, even small cavities can lead to big problems in that they allow food particles and bacteria into the tooth. All in all, it is a good idea to stay on top of your oral health. So if your teeth are discolored, you’re encouraged to schedule a visit with your dentist to at least rule out the presence of cavities. Also, if professional whitening is not an option, your dentist may be able to recommend veneers or other forms of restoration that can help you achieve a bright, beautiful smile.
