1 Month Old Baby Sleeping Through Night Feedings
Why wont my 1 month old baby go to sleep during the night? He sleeps good during the day, seems to be more active at night.

All infants should sleep on their side or back on a firm surface without pillows or on couches etc to minimize the risk of sids (sudden infant death syndrome). I review every infant death in our county and unfortunately sleep environment is the biggest risk. ...Read more

1 month old, formula feed infant has dark green poop that smells like skunk (sometimes stringy looking)...baby is gassy as well. Is this normal?
Could be: The first thing I would want to make sure is that your child is gaining weight appropriately and thriving.
