Hi all. My 1 week old baby doesn't want to drink up all his milk? And his stomach hasn't worked since yesterday? Any suggestions

Are you bottle feeding him? At one week old their tummies are very tiny and they only need about 1.5 oz per feeding. What do you mean by his stomach has;t worked since yesterday? I wouldn't try to force him to finish his milk, just try again little later and feed him on demand, at the first signs of hunger (clenched fists up near his face, hands in mouth, rooting) or at least try feeding every 1.5 hours....
