growth spurt or cause for concern?
My daughter was 5 weeks early, and tomorrow will be 3 weeks old. She usually eats 3 oz every 2-3 hours, but yesterday and so far today when I wake her to feed her (2-3 hours) she will only eat about 1 oz to 1.5 oz. Then about at the 4th or 5th hour she will eat the rest of the 3oz. Should I wait until she wakes up to feed her, or try at the 4th or 5th hour and see if she will eat the full 3 oz or more? She isn't acting fussy or have a fever or anything, she usually sleeps all day except when I change her and feed, and probably an hour or two during the night. Maybe she's going through a growth spurt?

She might be. My daughter was born at 36 weeks and she slept all night starting from day 1. I remember the first day I got to take her home from the hospital she slept all night and I woke up all freaked out because I haldnt fed her. Lol. I'm sure she's fine. She'll let you know when she's hungry. Just keep an eye on her while she's asleep.
