  1. Hi Neeraj and thank you for your consultation.How is baby's activity when hes awake,his appetite?The causes of excessive sleepiness can be due to either infection,or medicines.Crocin is antipyretic and anagesic it may cause sleepiness.If you think baby is not active when awake it's better to see your doctor. Take care and best wishes!
