Yes I wake my baby up for feeds because
1) My baby was badly jaundiced and needed to have enough fluids. Because he was badly jaundiced, he was exceptionally sleepy and cannot be trusted to wake on his own
2) I was planning to put my baby on routine. It was a give and take. He tried to adapt to me and I tried to adapt to him.
Feeding between 2-3 hours is perfectly normal. If your baby is already doing that, you're pretty much on track. Expect the pattern to continue around the 1st 2 mths.
