Baby sleeping through a feeding: do I wake up?

Unless baby has a medical condition and the doctor has advised you to wake baby up for a feeding, don't wake a sleeping baby. The only exception is in the beginning when they're a newborn. During the day I would wake them, but at night, if they wanted to sleep through a feeding, I let them. Once baby was a month old, I had them on a pretty good sleep/feed schedule so I never had to worry about waking them to feed.
