    Ok. we just brought our six little ones home today and we are new to this. They all are doing fine except for one. She seems to be tired. Just lays there. Occasionally gets up and moves around. Then just lays back down. The others have not done this at all. once they warmed up they have not stoped moving. we did get her to drink and eat a little.

    Try some sugar in the water and see if that perks her up a bit.

    Babies need lots of down time. If she's eating and drinking, she'll probably be just fine. I agree with the PP, sugar water may help!

    Thanks! She perked up after a few hours. Everyone is doing fine now.
