    hello everyone

    thanks for the replies! its comforting to know that i am able to obtain advice from other more experienced moms out there! I think the general consensus is that i should not wake baby up unless she wakes up naturally due to hunger pangs. So..i will just let her sleep thru until nature makes its call.

    As for her growth line, according to the paed.. she is gaining the "right" amount of weight between 20-30mgs per day. I am not sure which percentile she falls into though.I may try the dreamfeed technique but only if her growth rate does not seem to be in line.

    I woke my daughter in the early days because she was not gaining weight. Once she started putting weight on, I let her sleep for as long as she wanted (meant I could too!!)

    no need to wake up baby for feeding unless she is not gaining weight. sleeping will help her to grow - it's actually good for her! as for percentiles - don't worry too much about where she falls as long as she is moving up from whereever she is! Good luck!

    Hi my girl goes to bed from 8 til 7am since 3 months old so dun need to worry.when they're hungry they'll wake up naturally

    And it means that her day feed is sufficient too :)

    i;m sure alot of mommies are envy of u :)
