I'd never wake a sleeping baby.

I always fed on demand, no schedule.

I wake her up to eat every 2 to 3 hours but I do it very gently. If we're both asleep, I'll feed her when I wake up.

I did with my first as she was severely jaundiced, extremely high levels.  It was February and I'm in the PNW so there was no sun around at all.  She lost way more than the normal amount of weight a baby should lose in the beginning and refused to eat from breast or bottle.  So we had to wake her to eat often.

I woke mine, except at night.

Unless baby is having trouble gaining, it's best to just let them wake on their own to eat. We are all born instinctively knowing when we are hungry and when we are full. There's no reason to mess with that if there are no other issues with eating and weight.

We just fed on demand and our babies were happy and healthy!  :)

I just realized that sounded weird.   They are now happy healthy kids with a good appetite!  

I am a busy working mom to two very active girls.  I love my kids, play on the floor in the fort with them, take them to the park, and love them always!  I can't imagine life without them!

Never wake a sleeping baby.  They will wake up when they are hungry.

I always let them wake up and eat when they were ready.
