My son is two weeks old. Usually he gets fussy and eats every 2-3 hours (breast). The first few days I even had to supplement because he was so hungry (hospital started supplementing - was not my initial idea). Today, however, he is sleeping 4-5 hours straight! I tried waking him for a feeding but he seemed uninterested and went back to sleep. He has eaten, but the feedings are very far apart (or seem to be from what I am used to). Is he sleeping too much - eating too little - for being only two weeks old??? Should I be concerned??? He is not running a fever - but I am worried (first time mom btw).
