I never really wake up my son, he is two months old. I know it may mean he goes to bed later, but so far he hasn’t seemed to be affected by an hour change in his schedule. If a baby is sleeping, then it usually means they need the sleep. I know sleep training books say to not let them sleep long, but honestly I don’t care lol. When it comes down to it, I feel that what’s best for MY baby is to let him sleep whenever he wants to. I like following a schedule too, but if he is tired then I’m not going to try to keep him awake so he goes to bed at the time I think he should, or wake him up so he goes to bed on time. I just let him do his thing 🙂 So far, it works for us.

No, don’t wake a baby, no, no, no... (said in a whisper)  I learned that one the hard way.  Did it once.  I woke him up to show off his beautiful newborn baby-blue eyes to someone.  Oops.

Oh yeah, and I’m a proponent of letting the baby set the schedule, rather than forcing the baby to stay on a schedule.  And babies need different things at different times, sometimes more sleep, sometimes less.  Sometimes more food, sometimes less.

I wouldn’t wake him. He obviously needs thesleep. 

I agree with PP we let baby set the schedule. I’m not checking the clock and he goes to sleep when he is tired. We all win 🙂
