Hi Welcome to Healthcare magic....
Baby of 6 day old does three things 1)cry for feeds 2)potty 3)sleep.
Usually a newborn sleeps for most of the time.
Normally baby crys for feeds -feeds 20-30 min - sleeps for 2-3 hrs and gets up and crys again for feeds. This cycle happens round the day.
Usually baby passes urine > 6 times a day and poos after every feed.
Babys remain more active at night than day.
