  • ((Hope this doesn't come off as 'mean')) but at this point, I'd be calling her pediatrician, now. Call and set up an appt for the soonest possible date.

  • maybe cutting a tooth.. during the day wake her up so she'll sleep at night.. talk to her doctor about her not eating

  • Is she eating at all? About how much (of formula) and about how often (nursing)? Are you changing 6-8 diapers in a 24 hr period? Is she gaining, or maintaining her weight? Meeting milestones? If yes to all of these, I personally wouldn't worry yet, but if it keeps up, there may be an underlying issue. She could be preparing for a growth spurt, which could explain why she's sleeping so much.

  • this actually sounds like a growth spurt. Offer the breast as much as possible and count diapers. if ur not getting 6-8 a day call her dr.
