Was your baby feeding well before?

yes, now she sucking is better, but she sleeps down with in 5-10 min.... she is not ta
Is your baby crying excessively?
No....most of the time sleeping
i have noticed one more change in last two days
Is she having fever?
earlier there was a quite overflow of milk from my breast... whenever baby was used to hungry...there was enough milk flow from my breast...
what change have you noticed in the last 2 days?
Is there any yellowish discoloration of the skin of the baby?
What is the colour of the urine your baby passes?
but skin color is normal
Let me brief you.
The amount of urine passed by a child is proportional to the feed intake.
It looks like the amount of your daughter
*daughter's feed has slightly reduced resulting in resulting reduction in urine output.
The blood from her vagina can be sometimes normal.
This occur because during pregnancy there are some hormones which get into baby and after delivery as the effect of the hormone wean off
it results in some vaginal bleeding.
ok, how long will this generally remains
This usually would settle down subsequently.
It may be present for a day or two and disappear.
As long as the bleeding is not heavy,
and the child is comfortable, I do not think this is a major problem.
yes it's not heavy....
However, i would be worried, if your daughters feeding is reduced now.
This could happen due to numerous reasons.
I would suggest you to watch over her for the next 2 days.
If feeding doesn't improve or if your daughter has other symptoms like
Have you followed what I suggested?
Fever is another symptoms which you need to look for.
ok, she there is quite increment to drowsiness.
All new born get jaundice after birth.
This jaundice can make your child a bit drowsy.
If the drowsiness worsen gradually, then it needs medical attention.
Do you follow?
Well doctor: we had visited Pediatrician on Friday i.e. yesterday but nothing was diagnosed.. we have been asked to come on Monday again for BCG vaccination
i do not find any serious condition currently.
But I would advice you to watch over your baby religiously.

It is more likely your daughter should improve.

If the symptoms worsen or you notice the other symptoms, then your baby needs to be evaluated.
Hope it is clear.
