I say do what is best for your child. If your baby is hungry every 2 hours feed him every 2 hours.
I've always fed on demand. A lot of times mine were just comfort nursers.
No, I'd say just feed on demand. Your baby knows when s/he is hungry or wants to/needs to nurse for other reasons not and it's not always on a schedule.
I started on demand then we kind of naturally just fell into a schedule. If you're wanting to get baby on a schedule maybe try feeding him (her?) every two hours and see how that goes. Otherwise, as long as weight gain and everything is normal, no harm in continuing to feed on demand. Eventually you'll probably settle into a schedule without trying.
Why would you put him on every three hours? Maybe he's not ready for that.
