  • How old is your little one? My SIL thought that she had the easiest baby ever because the baby ate and slept and never fussed. Turned out that she had a small hole in her heart and needed surgery at 2 yrs old. Everything was fine, but they didn't realize that anything was amiss because the baby was gaining weight, eating well, color was good...she just slept a LOT!

    Basic rule for New Moms: if you think something is wrong/odd/off then bring it up to your pediatrician. If you're still uncomfortable then push the DR until you're satisfied. Trust your instincts!!! Good luck!

  • So the baby eats without waking up? I'm not sure, but it sounds like an awful lot of sleeping. I think I read somewhere that a newborn sleeps between fourteen and sixteen hours a day. Check with your doctor.
