Re: To Wake or Not To Wake?
At 6 days old, you want to wake her. Every 3-4 hours. And watch diaper output. When a baby sleeps like yours is, you want to worry- at least a little bit- about how much milk she's getting. Sleepy babies sometimes just don't take in enough.
Tricks you can try:
- annoy her by running a cool damp washrag against the grain of her hair or across the soles of her feel
- turn on a fan
- express some milk onto her lips or into her mouth- the taste may remind her to wake and nurse
