my baby is 8 days old..
the hospital told me that she should be waking up every 2-3 hours to eat, or i have to wake her up to eat. She only wakes up on her own once in awhile, but when I wake her up I can't get her out of her deep sleep enough to eat for longer than 5 mins. She just falls back asleep. Also, if I let her, she will sleep almost all through the night. I breastfeed. Should I try pumping and giving the bottle at night? IDK what to do, or if this is normal or what. I don't see the pediatrician till thursday, and idk if they would answer me if i call cuz i havent even met them yet.

When a baby is hungry I promise they will let you know. Don't wake her up unless a pediatrician told you to do so for a reason. If you start waking her up it will become a habit for her to wake up at certain times. Baby's will let you know in no uncertain terms what is up with them. Its the way they cry, each cry is different..The reason she doesn't wake up for you is because she is not ready to be up. You will stress yourself out if you do this and worry about her. no question for a pediatrician is worthless.Write all of your questions down and ask away/ Congratulationsâ˜º
