My daughter is 2 weeks old and she is sleeping all day. I have to force her to breastfeed and she will drink less and sleep again. She is awake in the night and having a good amount of milk in the night. She makes on average five to six wet clothes. I am worried as she is sleeping 7 to 8 hours as a stretch during the day without milk. I tried many things to wake her up, but all in vain. Even I tried to feed her while she is sleeping and she will drink less sometimes and most of the time she does not drink. I am not sure if she is getting enough milk and really worried. I need a help to understand how often I should feed her and how to wake her up to breastfeed. Also, how to identify if she is drinking enough milk? I checked with a local pediatrician and he said it is normal and let the baby sleep and drink when it wants. But, another pediatrician said I should feed her every 3 hours and should wake her up forcefully and feed her. I am very confused. I noticed that she is having a lot of gas in the stomach and she is struggling while it comes out and crying due to gas and also before passing urine. Is this normal?
