    Re: my baby has tummy aches

    this sounds like a normal 2 week old to me. Brand newborns have very immature digestive systems that are just learning to process food. So of course there is often some discomfort.

    No, one night (actually a few hours?) of not nursing is not going to cause major problems especially when there were none before.

  10. Re: 4 week not eating well and not interested in breast feed

    No it is not normal for a baby to need to nurse for 90 minutes in order to get enough milk.
