Hello.. first accept my congratulations for having baby..

In neonates and children systolic murmur can be present normally also, what is important is its intensity, location and other finding like heart sounds s1,s2,s3

But if your pediatrician had advised you can get it electively after recovery from jaundice
wishing your baby good health
