signs of a healthy newborn baby- Demanding feeds for every 2-3hrs; feeding without any difficulty; Good sleep in between feeding; passing urine atleast 6-8times a day.
Also newborn babies will have some fast breathing for some time following every feeding.
coughing off and on, sneezing, hiccough are usually ll be there in babies.
If still u have doubt, visit ur doctor.
