Q:

My baby s 7 days old,  she s not taking feeding itself,  she s sleeping always I'm trying everything to wake up her but she s not waking up and not taking feeding pls help



Asmita Das

sleep is good for babies let her sleep as much she wants to.feed on demand.whenever she wakes up.

Sheeba Vijesh

if baby is normal weight and term, then its sufficient for baby to feed on demand... no need to wake baby up....

Aditi Gupta

if baby isn't taking feeds properly pls see ur doc. this is one of the first signs of sepsis. also did u notice any fever? is the latch sluggish?

Deepika V

No she doesn't have fever... 

Deepika V

My baby weight is ly 2.587 is it normal for 7days baby

Aditi Gupta

if she doesn't take feeds, it needs evaluation

Sheeba Vijesh

deepika, baby urinates how many times? did you keep count of that?

Aditi Gupta

weight is ok, but depends on her birth weight

Sheeba Vijesh

deepika, 2700 is the minimum normal weight... she is slightly less...

Deepika V

S she goes more then 14 times a day

Aditi Gupta

baby's weight should increase by 30 gms everyday

Sheeba Vijesh

ok, then she is taking feed, otherwise how can she pee? no tension, some newborns sleep a lot..
