Dream feed and sleep 11 week old

We decided to give the dreamfeed a go last week. Our daughter would normally
go sleep between 6.30-7.30pm and she would then wake up twice in the night (typically at 1 and 4) and then again 6.30 or 7.30 (dependig on when she went sleep).
In the day we try to follow the EASY method and she eats every 3 hours. She would have around 4 naps in the day. She normally would
get tired after 1.15 -1.5 hrs of being awake and then have a nap of 1.5 hrs after each activity time and then catnap in the afternoon. Some days she gets shorter naps than others .
We tried to use the dreamfeed last week where we first fed her at 8 and then 10. She would only take small amounts so we agreed that she was perhaps already full from her 6pm feed and as such stopped that and just done one feed at 10pm.
We done this and she would take alot more ie 4 ounces but she would still wake up and worse ie every 2 hours . We decided to move the dreamfeed to 11 and same thing she woke up at 2 and 4 and then 6.
We have done this for a week.
Can somebody help us decide whether or not to drop the
dreamfeed. Has anybody had the same issue?
I have read many threads where people would keep their babies up later ie go bed at 10-11 and they then get a good 6 hour stretch but with our daughter we find it hard to keep her up for long time otherwise she gets very cranky and overtired. Without the dreamfeed she would have 6 hour stretch but from 7pm-1pm
and then wake to eat.

I really would appreciate your help smile xx
