  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.

    On day 5, bilirubin 14.8 mg/dl does not require any intervention if child is born at term, medically well and there is no risk factor for high bilirubin levels. So you should consult your Pediatrician to evaluate the baby. Meanwhile ensure adequate breastfeeding.
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
