At 16 days you dont need to worry about jaundice level of 13. Make sure you check her throid hormone is tested and normal and she is passing pigmented ( yellow or green colour)  stools. If she is gaining weight just give breast feeds on demand. Its advisable to empty one breast before you shift to the other. Take care.
