My daughter Kaitlin is almost one month old. For the past week we have both had a little cold and I got used to her feeding constantly (crying for more less than one hour from last feeding but not latching on for long) Last night she slept from 11:30 until I woke her up at 6 am!!! Then she ate, but spit some back up. All day she wont do anything but sleep. I havent had one poopy diaper and am used to having at least 4 by now. I am waking her and trying to feed her every 2 hours but she wont latch on for more than a few sucks and then goes to sleep. I am trying to stay calm as she has already been to the doctor twice for just a cold and they made me feel like an idiot. Maybe she is getting over her cold???
What can I do to make her wake up and eat or should I just let her sleep, and for how long? How can I tell if she is getting dehydrated from not eating enough? Anyways, thanks, I do tend to worry about her a lot, I think I may be too worried for no reason, I hope nothing is wrong at least!
