Should I let my newborn sleep through her feeding times, or wake her up?
Many health care providers recommend waking newborns every few hours to breastfeed for the first few days. Once your milk supply is well established and your baby
is feeding well, you can wait for your baby
to wake herself to feed. Important indicators of a good milk supply are that your breasts feel full and then empty after nursing. Your baby
should also stool and urinate very frequently and should be gaining good weight at the first checkup.
