In brief: Jaundice
It is sometimes difficult to ascertain the presence of jaundice by looking at the skin only.
We look at the sclera (the white part of the eye) to assess for the presence and the degree of jaundice in these babies.

In brief: Press...
...Lightly on the nose.
When you let go, for a fraction of a second, it will be pale, and if pale yellow, it is suspicious for jaundice.
