These instructions are not to be all inclusive. Make sure you discuss all concerns with your doctor. When you rent the machine, make sure the rental company fully explains to you how to use the system before you leave their place of business or the delivery person leaves your home.
1.) Situate the base of the biliblanket on a flat and sturdy surface near an electrical outlet. Make sure the biliblanket extension reaches easily into the baby’s bed. Plug the base of the biliblanket into the outlet.
2.) Cover the biliblanket extension/pad with the disposable cloth covering.
3.) Loosen the baby’s clothing so you can insert the biliblanket extension between the baby’s clothing and skin.
4.) Position the baby on his/her back so the biliblanket extension is flat against the baby’s back and the baby is laying on it. The pad should connect with as much skin as possible. Cover the baby with a blanket, if desired.
5.) Turn the control on the base of the biliblanket to high to turn the light on. Leave the biliblanket laying against the baby’s skin for as long as prescribed by your doctor.
