The persistence of jaundice for longer periods in neonates is not unusual but it requires evaluation the Above blood reports are suggestive of persistence of hemolysis you have to rule out hemolytic anaemia and also other causes of persistence of jaundice like hypothyroidism so please consult your pediatrician
Next Steps
further investigation and consult ur pediatrician
