Why are you waking her? If there's no medical reason she HAS to eat at night, then let her sleep. She'll wake up if she needs to eat - if she doesn't, let it go. She'll adapt and adjust her eating schedule during the day. Technically speaking "sleeping through the night" is consider any 5 hour block of uninterrupted sleep. Most mom's don't count 5 hrs as a full-night though. LOL! I think my oldest was about 4 weeks old when he first slept a 6 hour stretch. My youngest was about the same age. It's been a while, but I think the general rule of thumb is a child is likely to sleep through when they reach about 12 pounds.
