() A young mother has opened up about facing the prospect of losing her infant daughter - and her husband when he risked his own life to save her. 

Nicky Browning, 29, told Daily Mail Australia her daughter Mila, who she shares with her partner Camm Pincius, was a happy and healthy 10-month-old baby.

But it all changed when baby Mila suddenly fell ill while the family were holidaying in regional Victoria.

'She was vomiting a bit and had a temperature, so we took her to the doctor and she was diagnosed with an ear infection,' Nicky said.

'She was given antibiotics, and that seemed to help so we didn't really think anything of it.'

Nicky explained Mila's symptoms largely went away, but a few days later, they realised something was very wrong.

'Her eye was yellowing a bit, so we thought we'd better take her to the GP again to get it checked out,' she said. 

The next day, the doctor diagnosed Mila with jaundice, a liver condition that causes yellowing of a newborn baby's skin, and sent the family to Royal Hobart Hospital.

'She got more jaundiced - and her blood tests showed that her liver was deteriorating,' Nicky said.

Over the following 24 hours, Mila's condition deteriorated.

The infant was transferred to Royal Melbourne Hospital to undergo treatment by a paediatric gastroenterologists - doctors who specialise in the gastrointestinal tract, liver and pancreas of children.

There, specialists found that along with liver problems, Mila was sick with the influenza A virus and RSV - a virus that causes respiratory issues.

'Her other illnesses made it all so much worse, but we thought things would get better when she recovered from the flu,' Nicky said. 

'We really underestimated how sick she was at that point.

'We kept waiting for everything to work out and for her bloods to come back clear one day, but they never did.'

Eventually, the doting parents were told Mila had acute liver failure, and that she would die if she didn't get a transplant.

'It was horrendously heartbreaking,' Nicky recalled.

'We had to put her on the deceased register, which is also something we had to deal with.

'You don't wish death upon anyone, but going on that register to save my daughter's life meant waiting for someone to die.

'One person's death is another's life, but that's another family who lose a loved one.'
