My LO is 11+ weeks old. I used to wake her every 3 hours till she was 2 months old.
Since then I've been feeding on demand, and she only takes 5-6 feeds a day. Sleeps through from 9:30pm - 6:30am with no feeds. When she goes 4 hours without a feed during the day, I still wake her up because I think she needs to eat, but otherwise I let her sleep. She's a sleepy baby and sleeps a total of about 17-18 hours a day even now.
Weight gain is normal - 6lb at birth and 11lb 2oz at 11 weeks. She is happy, active, chatty and seems very satisfied when she's awake and after a feed. She has 1-2 dirty diapers on most days and quite a few wet diapers (at least 8-10 a day).
I want to ask - at 5-6 feeds a day, is she getting enough? And should her sleepiness be a cause for concern? Thanks in advance!
