Re: Wake a newborn to feed?

My daughter was born at 7lbs 14oz and was pretty badly jaundice. I had to wake her every 2 hours to eat and she was so sleepy. It was really hard to feed her and she wouldn't eat so her jaundice took a while to go away. When we brought her home though she was eating fine and gaining weight and she was sleeping through the night. I didn't wake her, I thought she would wake if she was hungry and that she did, and she would eat quite a bit then go back to sleep. I think if the baby is gaining weight then there is no need to worry. My ped said that a sleeping baby is a growing baby haha
