My son was born on Sunday. We were able to come home on Tuesday. He was a perfect baby and had not problems at the hospital. Now, a few days later, his doctor is concerned with his weight loss. So we have to make sure he is eating and getting his wet/dirty dipars. Well, he sleeps a lot. I know that newborns do sleep often so I know I should wake him to breast feed. But its very very very difficult to wake him up to eat. When we finally wake him up, he eats for 2 mins and sleeps again. We've tried everything including undressing to make cooler, skin to skin, diaper changes, burping, talking to him, etc...
I don't believe he is eating like he should or having the right amout of wet & dirty diapers. I'm getting really concerned and discouraged. Has anyone else had this problem and what did you do?
