I was at my dh's family's house the other day and his aunt just had twin baby girls. They are formula feed and his aunt said that the doctor told her not to wake the girls up to eat. I was just wondering if you are supposed to wake them up or not because his grandmother seemed to think she was WAY in the wrong for not getting them up to eat every four hours when they are supposed to eat. I know when in the first few months you are building up your milk supply to nurse with so I would think that you want to wake the baby up to eat so you don't miss a feeding. Just wandering about this. I plan on waking the baby up to eat in the first few months to get my supply up but maybe when the baby is older trying to wean the baby from feeding at night. So is it different when you breastfeed vs formula feed? or should you just let the baby let you know when she wants to eat?
