Mine is ff and it is usually every two hours, 30min-ish to settle. After 4am she stays generally awake until 8am-ish.

Mine were both ff. For the first few weeks it was every 2 hrs (I think til they were 4 or 5 weeks) it then went to every 3 until they slept through between 12 and 16 weeks. (Well from 11pm dream feed to 7 am which I was very happy with).

Not sure if you already do this but we had a really good routine for night feeds which helped them get back to sleep really quickly after the feed.
1. Make up bottle
2. Put it in jug of water in the fridge (water already in fridge so cold) to cool.
3. While bottle cooling change nappy
4.by the time nappy was changed bottle was cool.
5. Fees then straight back into moses basket and asleep.

They did cry while making bottle and getting bum changed but more out of impatience because they quickly knew the routine.

Mine used to have a 3 hours sleep first round and the next 2 she'll sleep between 1.5, 2.5 hours. She will take exactly one hour to go back to sleep ( had nappies changed as well, sometimes twice as she was poking a lot lol) she was breasted. From nine weeks she was sleeping from 2, 3 am to 9 am without wakiny, that only lasted one month though and after we had 2 months of really rough nights due to eczema. Their sleep patterns change a lot first year smile
