Let me explain myself a little better... I offer my breast any time he is rooting, sucking, etc. but at night, he can go for longer than 3 hours, so I will get up and offer my breast every 3 hours, whether I see a sign of him being hungry or not. I was just wondering if/when I should just let him sleep or go as long as he chooses without offering it as often as I am.
I probably no help... but my younger son wouldn't wake at all for a feeding for at least the first 2 months. So I woke him up until he started waking up on his own. But since yours is actually waking up on his own during the day, I wouldn't worry about waking him up at night - except that I sure wouldn't feed him less than 8 times in 24 hours at a minimum at 4 weeks old. As long as he's being fed at least 8 times I wouldn't wake him up at night.

My DS sleeps through feedings too. I made sure to go no longer than 3 hours (a few times 4 at night) the first 3 weeks. But I've been ress rigid about it the past two weeks. Now he goes 2.5 to 4.5 hours between feedings and eats 6 or 7 times daily -- not 8 times.
SHOULD I BE WORRIED?
It's clear when he's hungry. I have offered my breast other times just to check on my instincts...
I should add he was 10lbs 11 oz at birth and was 12.5 last week.
