Hi, My granddaughter is 6wks old and for the past 2days she is sleeping way to much and now she is just sleeping all the time. My daughter has called her dr. but she has not called back? Is this a normal thing sometimes with Newbies???? We are really worried, my daughter will try and feed her and she will wake up and only drink about an ounce then back to sleep? Please if you could give some advice.
Thank you

She is most likely just going through a growth spurt, if she is still like this in a couple of days I would phone the doctor again, but as long as she wakes up to eat an ounce or so and is still having the right amount of wet/dirty diapers I wouldn't be concerned.
