Keeping baby awake long enough to nurse

My two week old sleeps hard. Which is mostly good except that she’s waking every hour at night to basically snack for five minutes and fall back to sleep.

I have tried everything I can think of and read in articles/blogs about sleepy nursing babies. I’ve tickled her, got her naked, changed her diaper, even a cold wash cloth... she is resilient. I’d let her sleep through it but she does wake up crying.

She’s pretty good during the day with two good solid wake periods in the morning and afternoon. Today was the first day that I noticed her not nursing for more than 10 minutes total during the morning/afternoon. She’s gaining weight solidly, so that isn’t my concern.

Anyone else in a similar boat?
