Should I wake her?

9 weeks old, woke up at 7am, back to sleep for a nap at 9am, totally normal for her. But she's now still asleep. She normally eats every 2 hours during the day (EBF). Do I wake her up now? Or just leave her to nap?

If she went to sleepy at 9 it's not 2 hours but either way I would let her sleep.

Leave her

As long as her weight gain is fine then leave her. In my experience switch on the kettle because as soon as you make a hot drink they wake up.

@SquirtleSquad I'm confused? She ate at 7, ate just before 9 and fell asleep shortly after, times aren't exact but it was around those times that she ate/fell asleep, so it's been 2 hours now from when she ate last to when she's normally be awake to eat again.

I'll leave her to sleep a bit longer, when should I wake her if her nap just carries on?

As long as her weight gain is good don't wake her. She's recharging, enjoy the peace
Congratulations thanks

I woke my little one every 3h until she had regained her birth weight not that she often went more than 3h. Then I woke her on the odd occasion she went 4h for a few weeks probably stopped this around 6weeks. Since then I have fed on demand only which is between every 30 minutes and 3h.
