Should I change my baby's nappy while she's sleeping in the middle of the night?

I do but that's mostly because, if I don't, after too long the nappy just leaks. The conventional wisdom is leave it if it's a wee but change if if there's poo. I change it first and then feed, because I noticed that if I fed first there was a chance either the nappy overflowed and leaked, or my baby would wee while I was changing him. I wouldn't wake her to change the nappy - just leave it until the next time she wakes up, then change her right away.
