My daughter is 5 days old. Her bilirubin test results 16.8 Doctor has asked to go for photo therapy in which they will keep the baby under light for 24 hrs. Should we go for it? Is there any other treatment that can be given to cure her jaundice?

Nothing to worry, Mr. lybrate-user, its a very commom condition innewborn babies. N phototherapy is the best option for that. Its totally harmless for babies. So do not worry n go ahead.
