Too long between feeds?
My 11 day old little girl only really wakes once in the night, she’s breastfed only and her last feed before I go to sleep is usually around 11/12 at night then she’ll wake between 3/4 then sleep again until I wake at 7/8. The midwife said last week that I should be setting alarms to wake and feed her so it’s not going over the 3 hours between but I find if she hasn’t woken up for it herself then she doesn’t latch very well and doesn’t settle back down afterwards and keeps me awake for hours. She’s gained 12oz in the past 5 days so it’s not like she’s not getting enough milk. Is it really that bad to leave her 4/5 hours if she hasn’t woken herself?
