Normal for 6 weeks?

My little boy has moved onto Aptamil hungry milk as he was feeding about every hour and a half to 2 hours and having only 80-100 ml. Now he's feeding about every 2 and a half to 3 hours and having 180mls. I thought he would be going longer between feeds now, especially at night, is it because he's having a growth spurt? He also seems to have gone back to sleeping all day after starting to be more alert and and for longer periods during the day?

Any advice for first time mum is gratefully received!

6 weeks is still very tiny, and if you were breastfeeding you'd probably be feeding him every 1-1.5 hours so I think 2.5 - 3 hours sounds about right for formula. They do also have a growth spurt around 6 weeks so you might find he calms down a bit in a week or so smile
