My son is 25 days old and suffering from jaundice and viral infection. His hemoglobin slightly fall in 10 days from 13.6 to 12.3.

The fall in HB is reasonable if they have been taking blood samples for the jaundice tests. But make sure jaundice is coming down or else if jaundice is getting worse and Hb decresing then it could be because of Red blood cells destruction creating more bilirubin which causes jaundice. Check with your pediatrician.
