OK,,,don't think I am crazy.....My daughter is 7 days old....How much should she be sleeping? She seems to sleep most all of the day and I sometimes have to wake her in the night to feed her. When should I begin to worry? You see I am 38, have a 17 y/o son, so this is like starting over for me!!!!! Thanks everyone

Holy cow! Did you really have your son when you were 11? How did you do it!?

But to answer your question I dont wake up my daughter to eat... But if your daughter isnt gaining weight and thriving (her dr will talk to you about this) you may have to wake her up to eat. But as long as she is gaining enough weight I would let her sleep and take a nap!

Hi Susan, congrats to you on your baby girl, I am just wondering how big she is and did you have her before your due date? I am asking because my last 3 were planned c sections and were 10 days to 2 weeks before my date. They all wound up with jaundice and my last one was very sleepy and didnt want to nurse. If there is any chance your daughter is jaundiced, you want to make sure you feed her every 3 hrs. If not, and she is a good size, as long as she nurses well and has wet diapers, you can probably let her sleep.
