My nephew was born just a few days ago and now has jaundice. From what all my brother has told me his billy ruben level is at 13 or 18 and is suppose to be below 6?

what exactly does this mean and are there chances of his little one pulling through?

i know nothing about those numbers but , jaundice is nothing to worry about, they might put th ebaby in a bed with special lights in the hospital and encourage natural sunlight too to help the jaundice
sometimes it can take longer then others to get over the jaundice.. neither o fmy kids had it though .
