Hi...., looks like she has developed Physiological Jaundice.... Mild jaundice will usually resolve on its own as a baby’s liver begins to mature.... severe jaundice cases may require other treatments. Phototherapy is a common and highly effective method of treatment that uses light to break down bilirubin in your baby’s body....More severe cases needs exchange transfusion...Feed the baby 8 to 12 times in a day which helps bilirubin pass through their body more quickly.....Consult Pediatrician for further advice....
