    I delivered 4 days ago vaginally and I got a 3rd degree tear.

    Not really. Like mentioned above, sleeping patterns in babies vary alot. Most tend to stay awake like watchmen at night then sleep during the day for the first three months or so. Some don't behave like this. They are all normal.

    I delivered 4 days ago vaginally and I got a 3rd degree tear.

    I delivered 4 days ago vaginally and I got a 3rd degree tear.

    Most babies have this habit of twisting and turning, making weird noises like they are trying to push something out... some cry or turn red on the face... then when they pass poop or gas, they relax till the next time. That's not colic. That behavior goes on for two to three months then...

    I delivered 4 days ago vaginally and I got a 3rd degree tear.

    We define colic as a baby who cries incessantly or non-stop fro periods exceeding 3 hours... more than 3 days in a row... more than three weeks in a row. Essentially, you shouldn't be sitting at home with such a baby coz likely the baby will have poor feeding.

    My daughter was given double dose BCG, how bad is that?

    Likely it won't be an issue. We used to repeat BCG vaccinations if there was no scar formed by 6 months but that practice has been discarded. Sleeping patterns in babies vary so not to worry.

    Will i get an underweignt baby?

    There are fetal/baby ultrasound that can be done to more accurately measure the weight and growth of the baby. I recommend you get one of those before you reach a conclusion.

    Likely gets nasal congestion due to reflux. Use saline nasal drops to decongest the nose
