Default time between feedings/ is this ok?

Brady is a very even-tempered baby and rarely cries or gets fussy. He is 8 weeks old today, but weighs 15lbs already (he's in the proportionate in length and weight though-- he's a chub but dr says perfectly healthy).

He gets his evening feeding at 8ish. He usually rouses around 2:30am and makes noise like he might be wanting to eat, but he doesn't cry, and goes immediately back to sleep if I give him the binky. Then, usually he gets up to eat anywhere from 4:30-6:30 am. Do you think it's ok that I just give him the binky at 2:30am, or should I force myself to get up and feed him?

He eats a lot throughout the day...
Usually 4-6am, 8:00, 10:00, 12:30, 3:30, 5or 6ish, 8ish.

If he'll take it, I'd let him! He's obviously getting enough calories during the day and growing great!

I think if he were truly hungry the binky would not work, so I say he is just fine. Take it while you can, Danielle was sleeping like that at 6 weeks and then started getting teeth at about 4 months and only just started sleeping good again the past couple of weeks.

It's not like he's starving. The proof is in the growth, so let the boy sleep and enjoy your rest!
