Re: Wake a newborn to feed?

Personally I woudn't worry about it because I am not a worrier when it comes to that. I trust my baby and their body. I won't wake at night but will during the day to help them understand days and nights. However, I will not force feed. As long as they are gaining weight and have no known health issues and have normal diapers, I am fine with following their lead. My daughter would sometimes eat every 2 hours when newborn and sometimes it was more like 3 1/2 so in general, I didn't wake her. She let me know. I am not an expert however.

Just keep in mind that a confident and calm mother is a good thing too for a child.
