I have a 5 week old daughter and am having issues regarding her sleep. I am breastfeeding her with an occasional formula top up. She seems ok healthwise ( enough number of poos etc. ) but there seems to be a issue with her sleep. For an infant this small, she hardly seems to sleep at all. I have read that infants should at least 16 hrs a day, but she sleeps only for 11 hrs or so. Also her sleep is fairly disturbed. She keeps making uncomfortable noises almost throughout and keeps scrunching her face etc..
Is it because she is not getting enough milk ? Her frequency of feeding has gone up in the last one week from every 4 hrs to every 3 hrs. Is her way of telling me that she is not getting enough ?
I have read that not enough sleep can interfere with mental development, so feeling quite scared. Please help !
