Some “Counting On” fans are concerned for the daughter of Anna and Josh Duggar after the new mom posted a photo on Instagram of the three-week-old. The majority of fans just thought the photo of Maryella was adorable and loved her outfit, but a few thought that her coloring was off leading them to wonder if she has jaundice.
The symptoms of it are a orange color to a baby’s skin and it’s easily treatable with special lighting treatment.
Anna captioned the photo, “Several of you have asked about this outfit Maryella was wearing in Aunt @janamduggar ‘s story. It’s from @kickeepants they are my current favorite because they are adorable, super soft, and they still look good after multiple washes! What are some of your favorite brands for baby items and clothing.”
“She’s beautiful; is it just the filter on the pic, or is she a little jaundice? Not judging or hating by any means, just an ER nurse with an eye for it lol,” one person commented.
“Very well could just be a filter. It’s baby #6 I’m certain if she was jaundice she’d see it, or perhaps already has and she’s being treated. Was just my nursing eye thought,” a user noted.
There were also plenty of compliments to go around in the comments.
“Omgosh what is the brand of her pacifier? My daughter is pregnant and due in july and that is like the one she had! I want to get one for her baby! And…your baby is absolutely gorgeous!” one fan wrote.
“Shes Beautiful Anna, Dreft is Good for infant clothes and it smells great. Her little outfit is Adorable,” another commented.
“That pacifier was the only ones my girls would take! Brings back memories,” a third said.
The couple announced the birth of their sixth child last month, writing in an Instagram post: “Maryella Hope arrived one day ahead of Thanksgiving Day 2019 and a great reminder to be grateful for all God has done for us! We are so excited and thankful to God for His special blessing giving us this precious, happy & healthy baby girl!”
