Monitor: It is very important to make sure the baby moves every hour. You don't need to set your alarm clock to monitor the activity during the night; i just mean during your awake times. If you really feel the baby is moving less, you need to call the OB and be seen. They will hook you up to a monitor and check the baby's heartbeat.

Constipation: A wk old baby that is breast fed can have a little stool every feed or one overflow diaper every 7-10 days. If it is soft when he goes it is not constipation & needs no rx. If he is formula fed, and passing hard pellets, you can use juice.1oz of apple or prune juice 1-2x/day will help most.

Depends: How did you obtain that reading. A babies core temperature (rectal) of 99.5 can be considered normal.If obtained from the armpit as many parents do, that reading would be abnormal & should be confirmed by doing a rectal temp.Any 6 wk old with a core temp of >100.4 should be taken in for evaluation immediately.
