In brief: Now!

Feed her every three hours during the day, let her fall asleep on her own.
Get her into the habit so it is not something new that she has to do in case she wakes up in the middle of the night.Goal-for you & your baby to sleep thru the night at least 8 hours & no night feedings!you will enjoy your baby much better, always happy & work faster.If you want a life, do it. My moms are very happy!
