Babies aged 40 days need good nutrition in order to grow and develop optimally. Infants less than 6 months of age should receive exclusive breastfeeding.
In infants aged 40 days, babies tend to sleep more hours than adults. If your child is sleeping, then you do not need to wake your baby. If your baby wakes up, then give breast milk until the baby feels enough. In addition, usually if the baby is already thirsty or hungry, then usually the baby will cry by itself. Usually babies aged 40 days suckle about 7-9 times a day.
But if it feels like your baby is sleeping all day long, then maybe this is due to a disease such as:
dehydration / lack of fluids congenital heart disease anemia / lack of red blood cells therefore, you should check your baby directly first to the doctor so that the doctor can check your child's condition directly, so they can know if there is an abnormality.
