HELP! All the new leaves on my Monstera Deliciosa plant turn out yellow!

The plant suffered some sun damage a few weeks ago, so I repotted it and moved it to a shadier place.

Is the pot too big?
Does anyone have any advice?

This happened to my smaller one, I believe it's down to watering too much, also I have heard they do this now and again to allow for more bigger beautiful ones to come through! I just take mine off and have a check of the soil and other leaves :-)
Uploaded a pic of my small one, took a yellow leaf of this morning - she's pretty healthy 🙂

Welcome! In the photo, it is only older lower leaves that are yellowing and that is normal.

If new leaves are yellowing it may be a reaction to the sun exposure and to the repotting. Did you remove some of the soil when you repotted or did you leave the rootball intact?

Thanks @WillC! Unfortunately those are new yellow leaves cropping up. I tried to keep the football intact and only add new soil around it

By new leaves, I mean leaves that emerge at the tops of each stem, not those down below. The yellow leaves in the photo are not a cause for concern and can be cut off.
