Waking up during the day

My little girl is 5.5 weeks, I wake her every 3-4 hrs during the day for a feed but during the night let her wake naturally which is usually the same around every 3-4 hrs. I was just wondering how other mums go about feeding during the day, do you let them wake themselves or wake them up? Not sure if I should just leave her to sleep and tell me when she’s ready to feed! Any advice would be greatly appreciated🩷

My daughter is 6 weeks old and I don’t wake her during the day for feeds. I find she feeds so much better if I wait until she tells me she’s hungry instead of waking her up to feed her xx

In the early weeks we made sure she was fed no later then 4 hours. Now LO show the cues when she’s hungry and go with that

Health visitor told me yesterday (at 14 days) to now only respond feed now above birth weight as we were also waking baby every 4 hours. However still setting our alarms for every 4.5 hours atm for personal reassurance xx

@Hollie that’s what I have been doing, once it gets to around 4(ish) hours I will try wake her xx

Hooow do you all get them to sleep for 4 hours in the day😩 mine won’t do more than 2 lol

Our baby is 3 weeks old and we let her wake naturally for her feed she wakes every 3-4 hours by herself!x

@Rebecca same! My 6 week old is feeding every 2 hours on the dot! And awake for the most part and still wakes every 2 hours at night!
