Normally jaundice is not seen after 14 days. Each baby doesn't require photo therapy. Jaundice is corrected on its own by the body's physiological processes. You can expose the baby to early morning sunlight.

Probably your baby is suffering from viral fever and must be getting medicine containing paracetamol used for fever, due to which temp is fluctuating. If there is no relief after 4 days of treatment, consult pediatrician else you may wait for another 2 days if baby is taking normal feed and active.

It is very common to have milk being expressed out from the nipples even though you may not be breast feeding. We need to worry if there is engorgement or pain in the breast tissue.

My 6 weak old daughter keeps on crying while she awake or keep sucking milk otherwise she sleep. What should I do to keep her calm.

Pediatrician

See that she latches on the breast properly without leaving any gap, otherwise she sucks in air along with milk, excessive ingestion of air causes fullness, colic, crying, burp her well after feed at least for 20 mins keep her upright, after you have burped her keep her in propped up position of at least 45 degree angle, don't give anything other than breast milk no janam ghutti, grape water, plain water, don't be anxious, relax, your anxiety is realised by the baby making her more anxious, and making her cry - just relax, take support from family.
