Why is my child not sleeping?
Q: I have a 8 weeks old baby and since last two weeks she has stopped sleeping. One day she sleeps for the whole day and the other 2 days she will not sleep at all. In the night, she doesn't sleep at all. She always wants to be in the lap, if we put her down she starts crying. Please help me as I am now very much tired and had not a single day sleep since last 2 weeks. What may be the problem?
A:It would seem likely from the information you have provided that your baby is having colic. In that case, a simple anti-colic medicine could be prescribed by your pediatrician. Also, keeping the baby in the prone position helps your baby to pass wind.
