It's not generally ideal to schedule night feedings (unless under a doctor's recommendation). You may want to wake your baby if they go lo longer than 5 hours asleep between feedings during the immediate newborn period, but other than those cases, do wait until your baby signals to be fed overnight.
Your nighttime feedings with most likely go one of two ways. Either your baby will wake up and notice that they are a bit hungry, and begin to fuss, coo, whimper and squirm, and then you will hear that be able to feed them before they cry, OR your baby won't wake up until they are all ready SO HUNGRY and there will really be no way to avoid some crying. This seems to depend more on the baby's personality than anything that you can control, so just be ready to feed right away when they wake as much as possible.
It's somewhat anecdotal, but once a pattern of feeding is established, it's not uncommon for a nursing mom to naturally wake up with a sensation of "time to feed the baby!" a few minutes before the baby wakes to eat. I personally had an uncanny ability to wake up a few moments before I heard that "I woke up and I'm HUNGRY" wail.
General tips for newborn night feedings:
Before you go to bed, make sure you have all you need at hand-- burp cloths, diapering supplies, bottles ready to be warmed if you are bottle feedings, etc. You will also need drinking water for mom by the bed, especially if she is nursing.
It's okay to use nighttime diapers and not change wet diapers overnight if they aren't 'full' and your baby isn't uncomfortable, but change dirty (poop) asap.
If your baby doesn't seem uncomfortable or too gassy, you don't really have to stress about 'burping' a breastfed baby at night if they fall asleep while eating. Most bottle fed babies need to be burped.
