5 week old wants to eat all the time

He screams and cries if we try to do what his peditrician says and give him 3 ounces every 3 hours. He wants to eat about 4 ounces every 2 to 2 1/2 hours. He does have acid reflux and is taking zantac. I try to do what the doctor says but if I do he screams for hours but if i feed him what he wants he is more content and we have a much happier baby. Does anyone have any advice and how much did your kids eat at 5 weeks.

We were always told "feed on demand". It works better, at least it did for us...
