This is my first child & I am breastfeeding. Doctor said to feed baby about 3-4 hours at night & 2-3 during the day.
My son seems to sleep well during the day & I have been waking him every 2 hours to try to get him to be up during the day -so that he will sleep at night. But it doesnt seem to be working.
I could really use the 3 hours in between feedings at night.
My husband mentioned trying to keep him awake during the day....but how much of that is ok for a 1 week old..
Not sure what to do...please advise.
