Hi swati there are many causes of neonatal jaundice most common is exaggerated physiological but since your baby is having jaundice over a prolonged duration we need to look into other various causes . There is a list and by enumerating them will not help all you need to do is visit your paediatric let him examine the baby and than decide what all other tests are required to find the cause .
