The objectives of the study are to assess the existing knowledge and attitude of the mothers on neonatal jaundice and management of baby during neonatal jaundice. The findings of the study shows that 21 (42%) mothers were in the age group of 21-25 years, 48 (96%) were Hindus, 24 (48%) were educated up to primary level, 40 (80%) belong to joint families, 38 (76%) were primi mothers, 12(24%) were multi mothers.
