No tempature 98.8* rectally, no vomiting, 4 wet diapers, no poop today, normal stool yesterday. No headache or change in behavior other than sleeping a lot. No weakness, ate normal breakfast and lunch, didn’t want dinner but drinking normal water and juice. Only thing he’s had medication wise is his daily vitamin.
Pediatrician: Sumanth Amperayani, Pediatrician replied 4 months ago
Hi... As there are no Red flag signs from the information which I have gathered from you I do not think that there is anything for you to worry about it.
There are no loose motions and his urination seems to be normal with 4 wet diapers.
He has fed well and there is no signs of central nervous system involvement causing excessive sleep.
So I think there is nothing for you to worry about him and I suggest that you let him sleep well.
Probably it could be fatigue which he is taking rest for.
If he looks dehydrated or if he is excessively sleepy even after getting up by himself then you get back to me.
But as of now I suggest that you do not wake him up to feed and let him wake up by himself.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
