My six week old is feeding 5-6oz every two and a half hours - is this right? I'm reading online he should be going three to four hours between feeding...

Every baby is different, when mine was six weeks he was only going two hours between feeds and having around 5oz. You’re doing fine!

Don't worry sweets, that's just a general average. Every baby is so different, my daughter was taking the same as yours at that age.

My son fed often when he was that age too. Some babies need it. You could try extending the time between feeds gradually if you want, but unless it's not working for you I'd stick to feeding him when he needs it.
