  • Does she pee and poo as she used to have after she was born?

  • If she didn't, call her doc and see the doc asap.

  • r u bf or ff? if ur ff try and find a different bottle. my dd only likes the nuk bottles. how often are you feeding her when she does eat? how many wet diapers is she having? If you are really concern then there will be no harm in calling her doctor

  • If you are EBF then it could be something you ate that gave her a belly ache. Keep offering her boob, she will eventually latch on again. She will eat soon, babies and children don't know how to starve them selves.

  • Is it just today that you are having a problem. I remember when my daughter turned 2 weeks. she went through a time where she didnt want to eat but wanted to sleep ALL DAY LONG. Hers was a growth spurt and was fine like the next day. We could only get just a little bit of food down her and then she would fall asleep. It could be that. Still, call your doctor.
