After one month of age there should be demond feeding, ie baby will take feed as per her need, but 5_6 hours gaps should be avoided, upto 3hour is ok, please do direct breast feeding, avoid expressed breast feeding and bottle feeding

Four hours is good enough time for next feed specially in night. Night time feeding is more important specially when you give breast feed because of natural hormonal secretion in night. But your baby should be gaining weight adequately and day time feeding should be not beyond 3 hours
