Customer Question

My 5 week old baby is sleeping alot during the day. It seems to have changed over the last couple of days. He was becoming more alert but suddebly he is just sleeping all the time and isnt woken easily. He did get a slight knock on his head on tuesday. Do you think this could be related and what should i do?
