5 week old- sleeping almost all day

Thats it. Shes literally been asleep the majority of the day. She woke up at the normal time, 6:30, and had her normal bottle, but went right back to sleep.She woke up arounf 9:30, had a bottle and stayed awake for about 2.5 hours, had another bottle and slept from noon - almost 3pm. Then, I woke her up. But she was very groggy. She had half of a bottle, and fell asleep. I held for for a bit, and walked around and she woke up a bit more- finished that bottle and is now- asleep. Like a rock.

She started Zantac the other day. Is this a side effect??? Or...normal???

    not sure about the Zantac - might want to ask your pharmacist but she also may be going through a bit of a growth spurt...i wouldn't wake her up though - just let her sleep.

    totally normal! and enjoy it :)

    normal.  my 7 week old is still asleep a lot too. 

    zantac might be making her more comfortable so she can sleep longer but i don't think sleepiness isn't a side effect of the medication.

    Thats what I am wondering....does she actually feel so much better that shes resting well?

    I would think so.  My DD #2 took Prevacid for reflux and she was a completely different baby once we figured out what was going on and properly medicated her.
