hi welcome to HealthcareMagic forum
it is not clear what you actually mean
is it drinking water besides feeding
if the baby is breast fed and taking normal feeding then nothing to worry
if not then you should consult paediatrician immediately
breast fed baby does not need extra water
well fed baby should pass urine frequently
it is better to take consultation pf paediatrician and follow advice
expecting early recovery of your baby
