When do babies go from eating every 3hrs to 4hrs?

Our little guy is about 2.5 weeks old. I'm just wondering when everybody's little ones started spacing out their eating. Did you just start feeding more ounces per feeding? Or did they start sleeping longer in between feedings? We give him about 3oz every 3 hours.

My baby is 3 months old and he still feeds every 2-3 hours unless he is sleeping he will go 4-8 hours depending on naps or night time sleep. He drinks 4-6 oz.

Every baby is different of course but mine ate every hour until about 6wks then moved to every 2 hours until 3 months then was every 3 hours, even at night, until about 9 months he went to every 4 hours except at night he went 6 hours and now at 11 months goes 12 hours at night and 6 hours between feedings. He was breast feed so I can't really say how much he was getting at each feeding but I hear that formula fed infant start to go longer between feeding fast because formula stays in the stomach longer.

My daughter ate every two hours until she was about 3-4 months, then she started eating every three hours. She still eats every 3-4 hours...usually 3.
