Hello dear lybrate-user, it depends upon the type of jaundice that baby may have. Is it physiological jaundice or neonatal jaundice or breastfeeding jaundice etc. Mild to moderate jaundice may recovered with in 1-3 weeks. Severe jaundice >25 may need blood transfusion along with phototherapy. I think I answered to your question if you have more questions feel free to ask. Take care.
