  • My son is seven weeks so I'll try to help you out here...

    1. I don't understand what you're asking.
    2. If he's fussy even if his diaper is dry, his tummy is full and he's been burped really good it could be a sign but I'm not 100% sure because my son is really easy and fussiness could also be a sign of reflux.
    3. Try to keep him awake for a few hours during the day and he should be tired enough to sleep at night.
    4. It is fine to co-sleep as long as there is no chance of him suffocating. If he sleeps up against you make sure your clothes aren't too loose and the blanket doesn't go higher than his belly button. I sleep in panties and a sports bra and he sleeps up against me snuggled into my chest.
    5. Feed baby on demand. When he's hungry he'll tell you. Go by his schedule.
    6. Depends on the baby. Try giving it to him without warming it. If he refuses it until you warm it, then yes. If he takes it and seems to not care,

  • CONT

    then no.
    7. Again, depends on the baby. Mine will poop twice a day or he'll poop once every two days. Don't be concerned unless it seems he's constipated, straining or hurting to poop, or he hasn't pooped in over 4 days.
    8. Talk to his doctor about it. He/she will tell you when it's safe to. But it's not really necessary.
    9. Babies at this age don't have full control over their bodies. He could be kicking on purpose or his body could be doing it himself. Most babies don't start crawling until about 7 months so I really don't think he's ready to or trying to yet. His kicks are probably his way of playing or exercising as you call it.
