My baby, who is 1 month old, had a major heart surgery d-TGA on the 6th day of his birth. He was discharged on the 29th day. Now, he is 2.4 kg and at the time of his birth, he was 2.45 Kg. He cries too much and sleeps too much, but in both the occasion he takes very less feeding. We are much worried as he is becoming thinner. He also has fever in between and it was 99.5 Fahrenheit. After sponge bath, the fever got reduced. Please help.

Thank you doctor,
We are already in a hospital. Doctor has just checked his sugar level and it is fine. We are trying to feed him. He sucks only for two to three times and again goes to sleep. Doctor told us to observe for two more hours and if he is not taking food, then they will feed him by pipe. There is no fever for 10 to 12 hours now. Kindly give your opinion. What might be the probable causes?
