I have a six day old baby girl. She weighed 7lb when born. I am breastfeeding, howeveer baby is very sleepy and we have to wake her that takes ages for her to feed. She falls asleep on the breast and is not putting on any weight. I am worried. I wake her every 2 hours but it is so stressful to feed her she just wants to sleep. Is there anything I can do. Ss he is so tiny. Many thanks
