    Never woken bubs for a feed. If the child is hungry they'll let you know. Otherwise, leave them sleep. Sleep is very important too.

    depends. usually yes after 4 hrs. but if bub's is gaining weight and has the right amount of wet and dirty nappies then id let bub's sleep.
    next week will probably be a different thing and and willwant to feed all the time and not sleep!

    The first couple weeks are usually the calm before the storm!
    So enjoy a quiet sleeping baby while you can i'd say!

    I did, as DD was a baby who was one of a small to moderate percentage that would "cheerfully starve" - which meant she wouldn't cry for food and slept a lot. If I didn't wake her she wouldn't ask.

    If in doubt I would check with a nurse though.

    I've never had to wake my babies for a feed. They've always done such a good job doing it themselves.
    Unless there is a medical reason to wake them such as low birth weight I'd suggest not to. Waking them for feeds will get them used to it when you want them to get used to sleeping through... For your sake x
