In brief: No
Jaundice in the newborn occurs for many reasons, most of them are harmless.
It depends on the type of jaundice and duration as to whether a more serious reason exists for the jaundice. There is no way to prevent these, and only a doctor can determine the best evaluation and treatment for your baby's jaundice.

In brief: Yes
This happens when the mom's blood type and the baby's blood type are different.
Feeding as much as possible and keeping the baby well hydrated will help.
