Q:

Hi All,
My baby is a week old. He sleeps entire afternoon and doesn't wake up for Bf even after trying for long time. I m worried that it will effect his health and weight. From evening till morning he is taking feed. Any idea how can I make him take feed in afternoon as well?

follow Ur baby on demand keep feeding. every week month baby routine will change don't worry.feed atleast every 2 hr.

Check his blood sugar levels once.

First and foremost keep track of the urine output. Baby should urinate minimum seven times a day. In the afternoon try and keep the room bright and keep baby unwrapped. This will encourage baby to be more wakeful and take a feed more regularly.
