My Mood:
Wake a newborn to feed?

Forgive me if this is the wrong place.

I have a 2 week old and I'm pumping exclusively because she won't latch/suck. With the bottle she gets about 60-80ml of EBM each feed which right now is every 3 hours. I'm starting to think she's being overfeed because she's so tired ALL THE TIME and EVERY feed is a struggle to get her to wake up.

Should I be waking her every 3 hours to eat still or should I back off and let her take the lead?
