Re: is this normal??

I second the pumping when you need to - with my 1st I didn't and ended up with stretch marks!
As for keeping her awake, I nurse him when he is hungry, then change diapers in between sides to wake him back up good. I also rub his head, cheeks, feet when he is drifting off to help keep him awake.
My baby is also 1 wk today and his stool is just now yellow after being various shades of orange, brown and green so I wouldn't be too concerned about that. Probably related to the jaundice.
HTH - I know my suggestions are a little obvious but sometimes when your tired don't think about doing the obvious things so I thought I would mention it.
