Hello there. I can understand your concern. This is not something to worry. She will get fair as time passes by. This is not going to be her permanant skin color. Just breast feed her peoperly and till six months do not give her anything apart from breast milk. Even water is not required. And is possible continue breast feeding as long as you can. Best regards. De. Anil kumar jain.
