Wake to feed or not?

My 7wo usually feeds every 1-2 hours in the day, which while it's still quite often she usually sleeps through so I don't mind one bit!

But today she is so sleepy. Only waking for feeds and nappies. Now she's gone over when she'd usually feed, not by more than a half hour. DO you think this just the start of her feeding less reguarly, or do you think I should wake her for her routines sake? I'm probably gonna let her sleep a while longer, I'm just curious what you guys did with your DC, did you wake them in the day or just let them sleep till they told you they needed a feed?

I would wake her after 4 hours (or 3 if she's particularly tiny) but not after 1-2 hours. seems like she needs the extra sleep for some reason, maybe a growth spurt or maybe she's fighting off a virus who knows.

amazing that she sleeps through at 7 weeks! envy

She did have a slightly off colour poo yesterday evening, so a virus does sound quite likely! I'll wake her after 4 hours if shes still asleep.

I am deffinatly VERY lucky about her sleeping. I swear when DC2 appears(in a couple years time) they will never ever ever sleep, just to make things fair.
