Why isn't my newborn eating enough?

My daughter is two days old. She sleeps all day and will only eat 3 oz to 4oz a day and doesn't pee or poop, I try to wake her up to eat and she wont eat she will just go back to sleep. By the way, I am breastfeeding.

I am very concerned about your baby not eating frequently enough and not having adequate wet and dirty diapers. Please call your baby's doctor immediately as your baby needs to be seen. If you have further questions after you have seen your baby's doctor please email or call us.
