there is no "should" . Their tummies will wake them up when they're ready. At 8 weeks, my daughter started sleeping 11 hrs straight, 5 out of 7 nights (I kept a detailed log for her first 7 mths)
That went crazy when she got her first teeth at 7 mths and I stopped logging it as it was too depressing to actually write down her sleep pattern :p She's been a pretty 'goos' sleeper from birth though. I followed the "Eat, Activity, Sleep, You" (E.A.S.Y.) pattern suggested by Tracey Hogg and it worked a treat for us.

All babies are different. Some still wake every 2-3 hours while others are beginning to sleep 6-8 hours a night. My daughter had colic and didnt sleep well for a long time but my son started sleeping 6-8 hour stretches at 2 months. Both breastfed and born at similar weights. I would only be concerned if the baby is not gaining weight. Then you might need to wake them to eat after 4-6 hours.
