I received different and conflicting advice from different people (including nurses!). But the best advice is ‘do whatever works for you!’ Everyone is different, there is NO one advice fits all. The child health nurse had me wake my baby up every two hours for a feed as she wasn’t putting on enough weight. (We eventually changed it to every three hours at night as I was so tired and exhaused). When we had the 6 week check up with the Paediatrician, he was shocked we were waking her up at night. He told us leave her as she will wake up when she is hungry. He thought we were crazy. (We had the best night sleep that night).
