I am a go with the flow mama as well. I stressed myself out trying to put DS1 on a schedule and ended up making his own. This time I am just letting him eat and sleep whenever he wants to and he is making life pretty easy. He goes down anywhere between 8 and 10 pm and wakes up between 2 and 4 am to eat and then sleeps until 730 to 830 am. Not too bad for 6 weeks old. Naps happen whenever he gets tired.
Go with the flow here. I did the same with ds1 and he put himself on a schedule. It seems like mason has been consistently going to bed at 10, waking up to eat between 6-7 and then back to sleep until 9-10. He cat naps through the day, most likely because he's getting so much sleep overnight. He eats 4-5 ounces every 3 hours during the day. He's an easy going baby.
Charlotte has made her own schedule. She eats her last bottle about 7, goes to bed around 8. She usually sleeps until about 2 and then it's gets a little dicier after that. Sometimes she'll sleep until 6-7 and sometimes she'll be up every 3 hours after that.

Im a go with the flow too, Shes starting to get predictable now. She goes 4 hours between feeds and the feed after 11/12 at night she will do a 5-6hr stretch.
Once we get back from Holiday we're going to start working on putting her upto bed before we go so we can start getting a bit of 'us' time again.
Only schedule we have is our bedtime/wake up schedule....and that is because I have to get up early with my older kids to get them off to school...so at night...I'm tried. I let Liam eat/sleep as he wants during the day...but after 6:30pm I keep him awake (feeding bathtime....anything!!) until 8:30 which is lights out for my kids...
