    Default am wrong or are they??...

    Midwives told me to wake bub every 3-4 hours during the day. Pediatrician said that was a crock and the midwives didn't know what they were on about (not it those words). I chose to follow the person with the higher level of qualification.

    I fed 3-4 hourly and would wake them BUT I had prem twins that were BF and it was detrimental to their health.

    However with this new bub (when she arrives) if there are no issues I'll demand feed and will allow her to sleep as she likes, hungry babies won't sleep.

    There is no way I would wake up a baby to feed them through the night. Sounds like your friend has got ahold thing going. A baby will tell you when they are hungry. If you are demand feeding, as most professionals will suggest, you will be led by the baby and their unique needs, not a clock.
