Abstract : 

There is a two-month old baby, who is breastfeeding, with no known pathologies and who is not receiving any treatment. His mother says that for the last two or three days (she is unsure of the exact timeframe) he has been drowsy, is sleeping more than usual, and sometimes misses feedings. He has not had a fever or any other apparent symptoms. The consultation is whether we think this could be a normal situation, or if a referral to the pediatric emergency room is necessary.
