I worked to get my son on a flexible schedule, but it was based on his cues. So yes. I fed him on a 3 hour schedule when he was a newborn, but let him sleep at night, would resume schedule in the morning. And then his naps just came to be when he seemed tired, which settled into a fairly predictable pattern. But I have a fairly predictable schedule - I run errands at the same time everyday, I take him for a walk at the same time everyday, we eat at the same time. And I think that helped him settle in to a schedule as well.
