From the National Zoo:

“This morning keepers entered Mei Xiang’s den to offer her food and water. They came with some of her favorite treats — diluted apple juice, a sweet potato and a pear. She licked the sweet potato but didn’t show much interest it in it or the pear. Although Mei wasn’t very hungry, she was thirsty and she drank some diluted apple juice. Female giant pandas usually do not eat or drink much in the weeks after they give birth.

The entire time Mei was drinking she didn’t put the cub down, so keepers didn’t get a very close look at the cub. But they could hear it squawking and it sounded healthy. They also got several good looks at the cub on the web cams this afternoon.”
