Hi everyone, please if anyone had been through the same isaue as me, i would very much appreciate your suggestions. My baby 3 weeks old  is  constantly sleepy he wakes up every 3-4 hours to feed and usually gets to sleep right afer 2 min of  feeding tops. He is not gaining much weight 300 gr for 2 weeks... Does not like formula and does not care if i bother him or tickle or touch his ears or gently breeze at his feet. I asked my doct and she said it is normal he feels the confort of his mother's milk and falls asleep. I just need to be patient. 

Thank you.

There is dream feed and active feed. When they breast feed while asleep it's dream feeding they will forget to suckle and go back to dream land. When that happens while breast feeding tickle her mod section of her toes to keep her active to feed. Try to reach five minutes of feeding hold her/him up to burp then onto the other breast if possible. 

But in reference to sleep it's normal they are growing at a fast rate so their only job is feed sleep poop worry not as they grow they will have less nap time as they adjust to the outside world.

Your baby is fine and health and you are doing a GREAT JOB.
