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.

As long as they want, though they usually will wake up every couple hours. But if you're worried about them sleeping too long, don't. They'll wake up when their hungry.

As long as your baby is feeding fine and putting on weight they should be aloud to sleep for as long as desired. If not then probably no more than 6 hours I'd wake them up for a feed.

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.

Don't worry about how long they sleep.. Count it as a blessing if they sleep through the night .. My little Kendyll sleeps from 9-7 since 2mo and she will be four months Saturday :)
