Poor baby having all those tests done. I hope it goes away once the meds are finished.
We thought Jen was jaundiced at about 7-12mths, her bloodwork was normal. it turned out to be lots of jar veggies making her have that orangy glow

My ped says babies can look green or white, that happens. But blue and yellow are scary colors. Docs do not like yellow skin. I reallllly hope its the amox. I have nothing to make this easier on you, but you are in my thoughts tonight. When my sister was pg she got jaundiced and was in the hospital for a week, it was from TYLENOL!
As for milk, try nursing her when she's asleep. When my son (who is sick a lot - immune deficiency) needs more milk that works for me. I can slip in my nipple once or twice per nap and several times at night. Its rough on my sleep schedule, but easy on my heart KWIM?

You could also call a lactation consultant about using a supplimenary nursing system. A teeny tube goes into the babes mouth with your nipple while nursing and feeds expressed breastmilk along with yours.
Good luck!

It's not that unusual. Even adults get Jaundice, and our levels are considered bad at way lower than a baby. Push fluids (even stuff you maybe wouldn't normally like popsicles) and get her out in the sun in just her diaper for a little while. The sun will fix most of it.
