Please ask doctor about measures you can take to control it..is he breastfed?

Hi yashu,,,
Thats is absolutely normal for a newborn to get neonatal jaundice.. dont worry.. he will recover soon.. but mean while, breast feed him exclusively every two hours and on demand also.. every day early morning sun rays helps lot to get it treated.. so pls continue this for atleast one month..
