Let them sleep !!! Docs will tell you to wake then up and I think they're crazy. You and baby both need you're sleep. When baby is hungry, they will wake up and eat. :) don't make it harder on yourself.

Don't wake him. That'll just piss him off. He'll wake up when he's ready to eat. Congrats! :)

Same here..

Drs say to wake to feed. I think it's stupid. Feed when baby let's you know. Congratz! Hope you don't ride a hormonal roller coaster like I did!

You don't have to wake him to nurse him. Look for rapid eye movement and nurse then. They need to nurse 8-12 times per day.
