Help with Sleeping
Lilly is six weeks old and has just started sleeping in her crib without waking up every ten minutes.
I'm a first time mum and need some help because i'm not sure what i'm doing!

How long should i let her sleep during the day?
Should i wake her up to feed her night or day?
Will my milk supply go down if she sleeps through the night?

Thanks in advance!

It is great she is sleeping on her crib already. I think you should let her sleep during the day and wake her up for feeding at night if she sleeps all night don't wake her up, let her sleep.
You can always pump if you worry about your milk supply

I think you should just let her sleep.  I was always told not to wake a sleeping baby unless absolutely necessary (ie. losing weight therefore, requires more feedings).  If you need to wake her, I think you are better off doing it during the day so your nights are peaceful.  Pumping is always an option if you are concerned about your milk supply.  You are doing great!!

Isn't it funny how we go from worrying about how long our babies sleep to worrying about them sleeping TOO long?? lol
I would NEVER wake a sleeping baby at night, in the day, i will wake hin after 3 hours, just so he will sleep at night.
