    Bili lights are a type of phototherapy treatment for newborn babies with jaundice. Jaundice is a common condition in newborns where the baby's liver is not yet fully functional, causing a buildup of bilirubin in the blood. Bilirubin is a yellow substance that can make the baby's skin and eyes appear yellowish. Bili lights are a special type of light that helps break down bilirubin in the baby's blood by converting it into a form that can be easily eliminated from the body. The baby is placed under the lights and wears only a diaper, while their eyes are covered to protect them from the bright light. Bili lights are typically used for a few days until the baby's bilirubin levels are normal.
