Bedtime for 11 week old?

At this stage my formula-fed DS1 would have been going to bed at around 7.30pm sleeping until around 10.30/11pm, then waking for a feed and then sleeping until a night feed somewhere between 2am and 4am finally getting up sometime from 5am onwards.

DS2 is breastfed. We do bsth, jammies and feed at about 7.30/8pm but he shows no interest in going to sleep for anything other than a nap on me until after 10pm. Night feeds are erratic and getting him to sleep in his cot is proving very difficult. Is this just a different child? Should I be forcing the issue on bedtime and cot? Or am I doing the right thing by just letting him find his own way and his own routine?

My DD is now 7 months and stayed up with us (sleeping on us as watched tv) until she was about 3.5 months then we started doing "bedtime" originally around 9 and got it back to 7. I started from when she seemed to get naturally sleepy and then it started getting naturally earlier. I think BF babies are different as they want to cluster feed and their tummies are empty quicker

At 11 weeks mine both just napped in evening. Then we fed at 10-11pm and took to bed with us. They then woke maybe at 4-5am but half the time slept through until morning 7-8am.

I would rather they slept when we did that wake up more and early tbh, hence never tried 7pm bed
