When dd2 was a newborn, I would say that she fed 3 hourly, but it was fairly predictable feed times that ranged from about 2-4 hourly - she usually fed at 7am, 9:30, 12:30, 3:30, 6:30,9:30 & 4am. If you ARE interested in some sort of routine, you can do some things to encourage it -
    - start the day with a fees at the same time every day. So even if she fed at 5:30am, wake & feed her again at say, 7:30- or whatever works for you & your family times.
    - make every feed a good full feed, instead of on & off snacking. Keep him awake to take a full feeding at the breast. If babyhas a full feed, they tend to not want another one for a few hours.
    - do a feed play sleep or feed play feed sleep routine.

    this may not work for you, but it can help get bub into a routine if u do want to give it a go.
    Id love to start feeds off at the same time each day - that would certainly get us into a feed routine but we are lucky that we really dont need to be up at any certain time in the mornings. I let my babies sleep in, if they need it.
    we follow feed, play, feed, sleep.

    My DD is 10 months and feeds roughly four hourly. It was three hourly up until a month ago. She's never been a baby who has screamed for her milk so she's been easy to routine feed
