Re: Wake a newborn to feed?

Hi. Around here, we wake our newborns to eat. Every 2.5-3 hours. It can be a fight to keep them awake for an entire "meal" and then for a few minutes after eating (15 or so). But, it helps them be sure to get enough calories in, and enough awake time during the day so they sleep better at night IME.
