Q:

Hi All,
My baby is 2 weeks old. He was 2.800 kg when born and now I feel he has reduced weight. He is thin, though active. He sleeps entire day and have to forcefully wake him up for Bf however he is awake entire nyt. I m worried if the milk is enuff for him.



Usually after birth baby weight will reduce and the baby should regain it's birth weight by 16th day.. New borns should be fed for every 2to 3 hours also in a single feed they should drink at least 15 minutes in each side. So if the baby sleeps in between wake him and give milk..

Hello Shyama. I can understand. Baby will slightly reduce but keep feeding on demand. Baby is too young right now and will slowly learn how to differentiate between day and night activity.

don't worry just wake her up for feeding every 2-3hrs.. night time feedings will increase baby weight and milk production too.. sleep timings will settle down at most by 4 months..

thanks Priya and radhi
