If your baby still needs to eat more it is ok to wake her up to try and get her to drink more. Sometimes babies are too sleeping to feed, especially newborns. You can gently stroke or tickle your baby to help wake them up. Sometimes a diaper change can help as well. If you baby falls asleep at the end of a feeding there is no reason to wake her up and it is fine to just put her down and let her sleep.
