Hello ,physiological jaundice appears 2 days after birth and comes back to normal in a week ... But if it persistents for more than a week with bilirubin above 15 mg its considered pathological.. Cause for jaundice should be known .. Could be infection ....14 is still high doctor may continue photo therapy , try to know cause for jaundice...
