Waking to feed?

I'm usually just a lurker but wanted some advice based on what my son's pediatrician said today. He is gaining weight fine and doesn't need to be woken up to eat for weight/health concerns but she said I could wake him up a few hours after he goes to bed to feed him so he would sleep through the night. He normally goes to sleep somewhere between 7 to 8 pm based on his tiredness cues. He can sleep as long as 7 or 8 hours so he is usually up at 2 am for a feed (and he is truly hungry as he is actively sucking and drains the breast).  She said if I wake him up at 10 pm I could push back that long stretch and have him sleep until 5 or 6 am. What are your thoughts on this?  I don't know how I feel about this advice and if it would even work. Anyone with similar experience?
