This is not my first baby, but he makes me so nervous because he only eats every 4 hours, so he only ges about 6 feedings in a 24 hour period when I know he should get almost double that. He sleeps sooo much, and usually falls asleep on the breast as well. He has pleanly of pee/ poop diapers, and at his doc appt. the other day he had gained weight since leaving the hopsital. He is not jaundice, not fussy, and he does stay awake for a good while after eating..... and he is eating a bit better now that my milk has come in. I just feel like he goes waaay too long between feedings. He is only 5 days old.. I am not sure if I should worry or just let him be a sleepy head. Like last night he ate at 1030, then woke around 230.. then not again until about 8 this morning. He still hasnt eaten and it is now 11.
He is breast fed only.Answer Question
