Hi ankita.... check is it only night or after every feeding... if after every feeding try having diet that increases milk supply... be hydrated... Some infants doesnt sleep at night as routine changes.... differentiate it...

Hello Ankita, your child is not getting enough milk. New born babies cry for various reasons. ..but if a new born sucks his/her fist or finger and cries... then we have to understand that his/her tummy is empty. Another thing, it doesn't matter for how many minutes you nurse baby ...but don't forget to make your baby burp.... there are some cases where baby cried due to colic or gas pain.. and sucked his/her fist in order to get little bit comfort thinking that it is mother's nipple .

my baby was also doing the same after 15 days of her birth, she used to cry whole night and sleep whole day but this habit remained only for one month then her routine changed spontaneously... and I used to give her colicaid as prescribed by the doctor and gripe water for her gas problem...
