Should I wake her up to feed her?

I have a 2 month old baby girl, since she was 2 weeks old she has slept through the night, from 9pm to 5am without waking up for a feed, she naps a little during the day, having half hour to hour long naps every two or three hours... I thought this was normal until i went to mothers group where all the babies woke up at least once or twice for nightly feeds. Does my baby need to have a feed during the night? Should I wake her up to feed her or is it ok to leave our routine the way it is? She’s a happy alert baby, but what`s normal?

Answer: Hi, You are very lucky to have her sleeping through at this age and most won`t until 6 months of age. All babies are different but don`t be surprised if things change as she may begin to get hungrier and require this overnight feed. Cheers, Maree
