Hello everyone..I am new to the community, it's nice to see various discussions and help provided by the fellow members...I think this is a wonderful platform to discuss our problems and find a solution....My son is 2 months old...I want to ask whether you wake up a month old in night to feed or to change diaper or you let them sleep.

Hi Navita, with my children (mother of 4 including twins), I was a working mom and it was important for me to get not only the baby but also myself back into a steady and stable routine which included adequate rest/sleep. So at night if the baby slept, I slept. I used to gently change the pamper without disturbing the baby. The right pamper and Vaseline or A&D protects skin from wetness, so unless the baby was soiled I didn't disrupt their sleep.

If you are concerned that the baby isn't drinking enough and getting enough nutrition then that would definitely be reason enough to make sure you awaken periodically to feed - if the baby will eat and go back to sleep, otherwise you may start to deprive the baby. Adequate sleep is important for you both.
