Personally i have never woke any of my babies to feed them,if they are hungry they will let you know..never had any issues with them gaining weight
It is best to learn his hunger signs and feed on demand so that there is no crying because then he is starving if he hasn't ate in 3 hours wake him up to feed that is what they tell me in my classes I take 3 breastfeeding child birth and child knowledge
If you are only brestfeading it is on demand babys have a 3 days appointment and then a 2 weeks appointment if he is getting good weight you do not need to put him on schedule. My son is 3 months now and he eats wathever he is hungry. He is a healthy 15 pounds now he was bort at 7.12oz
I never woke my baby to feed but always fed on demand it varied 3-4 hours between feeds and he was perfectly healthy putting on weight etc... I personally believe never wake a sleeping baby they'll do what they want and they won't let themselves starve so just let them be I reckon and feed when they wake themselves.
I am on team don't wake baby. We are getting 4 hr stretches at night. Much better than the 2 hrs when we first brought baby home.
We were told to wake to feed but baby was only eating 1oz when we woke her so we decided to leave her and then she would drink a full 4oz bottle. See what baby wants ifddoesn't want the bottle don't force it baby's need their sleep and if he's hungry he'll let you know.
I wake my baby up every 3 hours if he doesnt wake up by himself. But he is slowly starting to get used to the schedule and wakes up by himself. He's 10 days old now.
There's no one right way it's figuring out what works for you & baby.
Just a note on that - make sure they are gaining weight sufficiently before and during if you plan to try this. If baby doesn't stay growing properly, start waking to feed!
According to hospital and doctors you should wake them up to feed them.
Personally, I only do this for about a month and then I start waiting longer to wake the baby. But that's how I train my kids to sleep through the night so early.
If u breast feed it's on demand
You should have a health visitor or midwife at the hospital who will go through it all before u were discharged xx
