Hello, my baby girl is almost 5 weeks old. For the past two

Resolved Question:

Hello, my baby girl is almost 5 weeks old. For the past two days she is not feeding like before. She used to take 120ml every 3 to 4 hours, and now she can barely take 60ml. And she keeps possetting all the time or vomiting (not quite sure, because sometimes it happens after a hour after feed). She has no fever, i measure it a couple of times a day and it's 37C. And her poo today was thicker, still yellow but not like before a bit lighter.
