Hello..

it is quiet common in newborns to have hypoglycemia as the babies are too sleepy and skip feeds.. hence, it results in hypoglycemia.. just take care of his regular feeds i.e on demand and also ensure to feed him once in 2-3 hours, whether he is is sleepy or not never matter.. this much care is enough to avoid hypoglycemia..
