I have three children and all of them did this. I'm not saying your situation is the same, but I'm telling you this has happened to me. All of my children have done this. I would try to wake them to eat and they WOULD not wake. They each would sleep through feedings a few time'sand it startled me, cause with my daughter she slept 6 hours at not even a week old. I was enjoying the sleep cause she normally woke me up to eat. I freaked out and tried to wake her, and she acted like I was disturbing her nice little sleep. She went on to do this many times, as did my two sons. The doctor assured me it was normal, sometimes they just want to sleep. LOl. I am not saying this is the case with you, and by all means get the DR's help, I just wanted to maybe help you buy letting you know it has happened to others. Good luck and I hope all is well. And I'm sure the DR's aren't ignoring what you came in for, they are just looking for other symptoms of what "could be"

Doctors have not ignored that the child is sleepy. they are trying to find the cause why your child is sleepy. if they find the cause than only they can treat.

I have strep throat and can t get rid of it. I had a positive rapid strep screen and took Zpac which was worthless and now am on Cipro 500mg for 10 days which I thought was helping, I have 2 days left and starting today my throat is all red again and started to hurt just like it did when it first came on. I have changed toothbrushes like 6 times and cleaned and sanitized and aired out my house. also my kids have had it and my daughter is now on her 2nd dose of antibiotics . why wont this go away. and is it even possible for it to start to go away and then start coming back while still on Cipro or do u think this is maybe a virus on top of it? please help
