My daughter is 16 days old suffering from jaundice(13.6). She is active. She takes feed every hour and if she passes urine after 15-20 minutes of feed then she want feed again. Is this okay?& how to cure her jaundice as in last test it was 13.1 now it is 13.6. Is it necessary to feed from one side at once.

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.
