Well Emmalynne is 6 weeks old and I wanted to know...people mention the growth spurts. She has been eating...having wet diapers...poo diapers. The thing that bothers me is that I do not recall Rylin sleeping this much at this stage. She is obviously getting enough to eat because she has wet and poopy diapers. She has LITERALLY slept ALL DAY. Should I be concerned? She also has green crusties in her eyes whenever she does wake up. She seemed to be happy earlier and then later on whenever she woke up she was fussy. What to do?

Sounds EXACTLY what we went through with Kate a couple weeks ago. I wouldn't worry...if she's sleepy like this for longer than a couple of days I would MAYBE talk with a DR...but if it's just for a couple of days than I'm sure it's just a growth spurt! (NAK)
Noah is the EXACT same. He's never gone through anything that people describe as a growth spurt. He's always sleeping .. he's never changed the length of time he nurses for and he always nurses every 3-4 hours. Weird!
I talked to my doctor about it because I was concerned, too - she just said as long as he's steadily gaining weight there is no need to be concerned.
Christian was realy sleepy at around 6 weeks, I started to get worried but my child nurse said he was fine, putting on weight having wet and poopy nappies regularly. Now that he is 8 weeks he is awake alot more and alot more alert. I wouldn't worry too much, but if it does concern you there is no harm in asking your doc.
