    I would say there isn't such a thing at this age - especially if they're feeding about 6 x a day and lots of wet & pooey nappies...

    Yes breastfeeding...

    She tends to sleep ALL the time! like from3-4pm in the afternoon, she's sleeping, she awakes for feeds and bum change but straight back to sleep afterwards untill 8am in the morning... in the morning's she's a little bit more fussy but still only awake for about 1/2an hour at a time...
    She's still wetting 6+ nappies, and pooing every day...

    She may be just going through a growth spurt and doing lots of feeding and lots of sleeping!

    if she is putting on weight and not unwell, I would let her sleep.
    You have said she is feeding well, and having good wet/dirty nappies, so unless she was not gaining weight, or otherwise unwell I would not worry at all.

    What Caro says is true, some babies just don't have the energy to wake up and feed, so if you are worried, and you tell your MCHN the patterns you have (write them down) she should be able to tell the difference - i.e. whether or not to wake her. HOwever, if u were waking it would be to feed, and you say the feeding is all fine...

    how much is she sleeping?
