My son at 7 months has a very yellow/golden skin colour. I have searched several websites for an answer, but I cannot find anything in writing. The first 4 days upon his birth he had a very mild jaundice, and he did not have any kind of treatment.
Subsequently, I have had many comments that he has a fine colour and whether he is exposed a lot to the sun (which he is not at all), and what a tan he has got ... Others think that he father is a little dark skinned, which is not the case. Both of us have bright hair and a very light skin colour.
It was not until I met with my mothers group that I realized that his skin colour is different, as he is not at all as light as is common for babies.
I have asked my GP to whom he seemed quite normal, and I would totally agree, had I not seen him together with other babies at his age.
I hope you can give me an answer.
