  • That sounds pretty normal for a 4 week old. Eat, sleep, poop, eat, sleep, poop...

  • That is pretty routine. Most babies will eat every 2-4 hours, then sleep for the times between feedings. They don't stay awake much yet, and sometimes won't even finish eating before they pass back out. Nothing wrong with it, just get as much sleep as you can while the baby is sleeping is all I can say. :)
