There are no physical signs, kindly ensure you provide enough breast milk for your Baby and informed them he or she is on EBF hence no need for water

Self medication is discouraged especially as a nursing mother. There are some antibiotics that are safe for breastfeeding mums. However, do not self medicate please see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment
Can warm water be given to a newborn baby since the breast milk is not flowing well
it is wrong to give water to a newborn. She advises that if the mother is not lactating yet, breast milk substitute should be given (i.e formula aged 0 - 6 months). Also ensure baby is still put to breast frequently to kick start lactation as breast milk is the best food for any baby in the first 6 months of life (no water, agbo, e.t.c)

Dear mum, do not give your child any of the foods for now. All she needs for now is exclusive breastfeeding. You can express and preserve it well for her to take at the Creche. We at ATP are advocates of exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months after birth and WHO also recommends the same. If that isn't convenient for you, then you can get an age-appropriate formula for her.

Babies often lose their hair during the first six months. This kind of hair loss is called telogen effluvium. ... About 5 to 15 percent of hair on the scalp is usually in the resting phase at any one time, but stress, fever, or a hormonal change can cause a large number of hairs to stop growing all at once.

All your baby needs for the first 6 months is breastmilk. Your breastmilk contains everything your baby needs. Continue to breastfeed exclusively, at 6 months you can add complimentary feeding like papa, match crayfish etc

I will say don't just assume colic. There are other reasons why a baby cries excessively. Is the baby having enough feeds? Any other symptom? Is the baby consolable? It is best to get the baby reviewed by a doctor."

Babies on EBF do not need to poo daily, they can stay up to 2weeks without having to poo. Sometimes, they can even poo up to 12 times in a day. As long as the stools are normal. There's nothing to worry about.
