That sounds fab - you are lucky! She should stay in that pattern for quite a while - depending on how well she naps and eats during the day. Mine did this too from very early, I felt very lucky. We'd get the odd AWFUL night, but mostly, it was like you described.

Mine dropped the 3am feed about 4/5 months, and then the 11pm feed at about 6 months, now at almost 7 months he sleeps 7pm-7am most nights (apart from the last 4 because he is teething!).

Just read up about the 4 month sleep regression so you don't get a nasty surprise!

My 5wo cluster feeds between 6 an 8pm then sleeps through to about 2am, and then wakes again between 4 and 5. Currently loathe to wake him for a 10:30pm feed in case I can't fill him up and knock him out (I mean with milk as opposed to a blunt instrument). My plan in the next week or so is to get organised and express so 10:30 can be in a bottle.

It may well change - all babies are different! Just enjoy while you can, make sure she naps well, and feeds well and it should continue. When she hits a growth spurt it might change for a week or so, but then should go back to 'normal'.
