It worries the heck out of me!! Has anyone ever had a baby that just hardly ever cried?? Or a baby that slept almost all night from the third night? My first DD NEVER slept! I mean EVER!! She was very colicky! But Izzy is five days old, for the past two nights she has woken up once a night for a bottle, she eats about two ounces then back to sleep for another six hours or so! during the day she eats slightly smaller amounts about an ounce to and ounce and a half every two hours or so. The only time she ever cries is when we are changing her diaper or letting us know she is hungry. She will just lay there for a good hour and look at things, just lay there with her eyes open looking! If I happen to talk while she is in her bouncer or in someone elses arms she will turn her head in my direction. But its almost weird how little she cries, she just eats, poops, then falls back asleep just as peaceful as she woke up! I worry there is something wrong, she has a little jaundice but doctor just told us to keep putting her in the window while she naps. Have any of you ever had a baby like this? Is it normal and I'm just used to having a colicky baby? Should I be worried?

My son (firstborn) was like that. Perfect baby. I would always brag on him and always had people say just wait until your second and sure enough my daughter is the fussiest baby ever. Always crying, pitches fits in restaunts...its just different babies have different temperments. Enjoy the quiet!

Bump cuz I have no idea. Hopefully it just means she is an easy baby and you can enjoy the serenity of a quiet one. : )
