My 4 week old DD has been unsettled all day and after a good stretch of sleep in the morning and a few 20min (if that!) cat naps during the day she settled around 4:30pm. It is now 8ish... Would you wake her for a feed? Or let her sleep and wake when she wants too?
Probably silly question!

I would let her sleep and I would go to bed too! I wouldn't express.

Only reason I ask is because she tends to gulp if it goes to fast! If I let some go it may not be to fast for her maybe?

I wouldn't express now. She may wake at any moment. I'd express after the next feed if she doesn't drain both.

I'd let her sleep too. And as others have suggested, I'd feed her and then express after.
Put your feet up, have a nap or a cuppa and relax! I loved when my newborn DD did big sleeps

i would wake her. 4 hours is a long time to go without eating. I would wake and feed. I also wouldn't express because your suply could still be adjusting.

Unless she is underweight, jaundice or not well, I would let her sleep - a well baby will not sleep through hunger. My bet is she wakes just as you get comfortable
