Depends on the child's age

I used to wake my son while he was still feeding every two to three hours. It bought me a little more sleep. As he has stretched to waking up once a night or sleeping through the night I stopped. I figure he will let me know if he needs to be fed.

    I never used to wake my children up to be fed unless it was doctors orders (with my first I had to) ... but otherwise let them sleep!

    I had my first child in April 2013, just before our one year anniversary. Riley has been an absolute joy and I love every minute of being mom. But I am the first among my friends to have a child, so there isn't always an easy place to go for advice.
