Infants sleep irregularly without continuous sleep. They take feeds, sleep ,wake up ,take feeds and sleep.
That grunting may be because of stridor due to laryngomalacia (loose cartilage in airways) and it is a benign condition and it will reduce as age increases.For loose stools give one probiotic and proper reconstitution of feeds and sterile feeding bottles should be rechecked
