If the baby was suffering from jaundice kindly keep the doc in loop for the same. Also colic is common in kids, do burp for good 20-30 mins and keep the baby down only when you hear loud burps and enough burptime is given.use hing moxed in lukewarm water and apply on navel

Please inform your pediatrician and take proper treatment for the mild icterus.
