Lactation related
I have six days old baby girl. I am feeding her but she is sleeping most of the time and does not want to wake up for feed. I tried many methods to wake her up like rubbing her back etc. But she sleeps quickly. And am not able to feed her in interval of 2 hrs. What should I do..should I disturb her sleep in night and feed? Or should I wait to wake herself and then feed?

Normal healthy baby may sleep up to 3 hours. Check number of urine passing in 24 hours. If atleast 6 to 8 time urine frequency in a day , then you should not be worried.

Keep feeding interval of 2 to 3 hours even at night. Try tapping at soles, behind ears and try unwrapping child before feeding..
