Brief Answer:
Physiological jaundice

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
Congratulations to both of you for the new addition in the family.
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
1. I have reviewed the report.
The baby is having physiological jaundice.
She should be given phototherapy and bilirubin levels should be tested ever 48 hours, to check the increase or decrease in the levels.
2. She should encourage the breast feeding by putting the baby to breast at regular intervals.
Moreover, she should take plenty of fluids, milk, high protein diet, and cumin and carrom seeds to increase the quantity of breast milk.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
