Answer: Hi.. Dear Newborns should be nursed anytime they cue hunger, but at least every 2 hours during the day and at least once during the night. Once your baby has established a good weight gain pattern (at least 4 ounces per week, for babies under 4 months), you can stop waking baby to nurse and let him set his own pattern... If your child doesn't wake up lift the baby up and take your child's mouth in front of nipples.. Maybe you can squeeze little milk on this child 's lips... Try it maybe your problem gets resolved...

Question: My 6 days old baby sleeps continuously for 4 hours without drinking milk.... I am not able to wake her up also.. Is it normal?
Answer: It's normal as infant sleeps more, but if during feed she sleep then you may follow these tips, hope it will be helpful Tips to keep baby awake during a feed: burp and switch breasts oftenchange diaper half way through a feedingrub, massage or tickle feet, toes, hands and/or underarmsstroke facetalk or sing to babystroke baby's spine or walk your fingers up baby's spinewashcloth on face/neckblow gently into baby's facetalk to babyremove his clothes, do skin to skin, or at least unsaddlesit baby upright since this is a hard position to fall asleep inplace baby on a flat surface next to you without blankets etc. After baby lies there for 30 seconds or so he'll probably start to fuss and kick and be ready to eat again. This is one of my favorite techniques. It works really well, and it doesn't require much energy from a tired mom.bicycle baby's legs and armsfeed baby in a light and noisy environmentCrown Reflex- Dance your fingers on the crown of baby's head (firmly but not hard). This helps to lengthen feeds by keeping baby sucking and swallowing.Palmar Reflex- massage baby's palms in a circle with your thumbs. Do this for up to a minute if needed to help baby open his mouth and get ready to nurse.

Answer: Hi... At this early stage, you must feed her every 2 hours!!! You can wake her up by tickling her ears and feet.. Encourage her to feed for 20 mins each side when you do, even if she dozes off while feeding.
