Question is it true!!!!

that you are suppost to wake up the baby to feed him/her every 4-5 hrs untill they are 6 months old, because if not their blood sugar level will go down and could cause them problems????

i just heard that from a friend of mine who has a baby same age as Sebastina (2 months almost 3) and her dr told her this.

unless the baby has a medical problem, there is no need for that. The baby will wake up when he/she's hungry.
