sleepy 2 week old?

my 2 week old sleeps a ton, i had a csection so i was prescribed tons of doctor approved pain killers that were ok to take while breastfeeding. Does these medicines have an affect on her that causes her to be drowsy?

  • No hun, baby is just exhausted from the ordeal. It's completely normal for young ones to sleep a LOT. I went through the exact same thing - I was concerned for my pain meds and breastfeeding but they said it was completely fine.

  • Two week old babies sleep a lot. My youngest is 5 months old and he wasn't awake at that age for anything longer than a feeding and a clean diaper.
