Please wake up your baby by tickling on feet or rubbing earlobe if baby is sleeping while taking feed.; Breastfeeding is best and for such small baby you can't do anything else.;; Keep feeding at regular intervals...

Hey rukmini,you need to feed your baby frequently to increase weight. I see that your baby has gained back the birth weight within 2 weeks which is a good sign. If baby sleeps during feed,please tickle his feet and behind ears so he can nurse properly. Jaundice will subside within 30 days,just give your baby sunbath for 1 hour daily in the morning before 9 am. If in doubt ,get him checked for bilrubin level. Usually breast feeding helps in curing jaundice. And dont worry about the weight,it will follow. All the best!

Hey dear keep singing songs n lullabies or talk to the baby or tickle to wake up; while feeding ...let the baby have full feed ...Also keep the baby in the sunlight during morning hours ...the baby will be fine soon ..tc
