It is mostly a physiological jaundice and should come down in few days. Just keep giving good feeding. Give sun bath early morning. Etc.

Hi lybrate-user, Hope your baby is recovering from jaundice. The jaundice in neonate I.e <1 months old baby is not due to infection and is not usually affected by diet of mother. The best prevention is giving good diet to the mother so that she can give good amount of breast milk to her baby. Other causes like blood group mismatch or other liver weakness may not be preventable and hence most of the newborns (80%) get jaundice in their first few days of life. Regards.
