Chaithra baby sleeps long hours at this stage but we can't leave them without feed it's not good. You will have to wake her up by touching her ears or any other way at every 2 to 3 hours and feed her.

hello chaithra, u hve to Feed ur baby in regular intervals of every 2 hrs at least she s 2 months old.. if nt the sugar level of ur baby may drop down nd even gastric kind of thing can happen which makes ur baby cranky.  ma daughter s 3 months old nite after having milk she will wake up after 4 to 5hrs which s fine.. but for ur baby as she s too small u hve to feed her properly

You need to feed ur baby every 2 hours at least.  It's very important for their growth and weight gain. 

Sonali Shivlani

The most important thing to keep track of is that baby should urinate a minimum of 7 times in 24 hours. One long nap during a 24 hours period is considered ok. The rest of the feeds should be at 2-3 hour intervals.

For such a small baby it's recommended to feed every 2-3 hours.. if she keeps on sleeping. gently pick her up.. tickle on her ears or feet and feed..
