Unusual to affect NB. In a newborn, hypothyroidism is rarely if ever a significant cause of jaundice. Maternal-fetal blood group issues, maternal diabetes, dehydration, breast feeding etc are all more common issues. The issues of hypothyroidism to a degree it would cause jaundice would likely show physical features of a newborn with hypothyroidism. All of these questions can be sorted out with testing.
Be Patient. While jaundice may be caused by hypothyroidism, the likelihood is vanishingly small. Jaundice is very common, and rarely a cause of long term problems. Relax, enjoy your new baby and wait fro recommendations from your pediatrician.
