I never had a routine and bub was demand fed, even once we went to formula at 5 months. I had a very content happy baby who was a wonderful sleeper. Do what feels right to you.

To me, it means feeding a baby when they want it.
I have demand fed all my babies. I eat when I want, so do my babies.
I even demand fed my DD1 who was formula fed.
I had no idea people put such small babies on a schedule until the mchn visited my house when DD1 was a week or so old. She asked me how many feeds DD1 was having in 24 hours. I told her I wasn't sure, that I didn't count because I just fed when she was hungry and she just said it was a breath of fresh air to hear that.

I agree with pp in regards to demand feeding as in feeding every time bub sqwarks whether its for hunger, thirst, comfort, pain relief or just sleep hormones.
I also find nursing is the best way my children went to sleep under 12mths old. And the quickest.
After 6-8mths tho I find bubs regulate themselves a bit better and develop a routine of feeds. My baby will bite me if I try to feed her but she is not hungry.
But growth spurts and illness often revert them back to crazy booby babies. My 11.5mth old dd2 is just recovering from a nasty cold and for the first day in 5 days she ate solids. Otherwise she was attached to the boob.
LMM - I think you are doing fabulously.

She also broke so many 'rules', especially with regards to sleep. No expert will tell you that an 8 week old who sleeps 3x15-20min naps a day (fed/rocked to sleep) will boobie-nurse to sleep at night can sleep for 8 hours stirring occasionally and self settling ... but she did! Each bubba is so unique and even 'expert' advice may need adjusting for your bub.
