8 week old feeding schedule

I'm having trouble getting my 8 week old on a more managable schedule. She is exclusively formula fed. According to everything that I've read, she should be eating 4-6oz every 3-4 hours (she weighs 9.5 pounds). Right now she is eating every 1-2 hours day and night and is only eating 1-2oz at each feeding. I have tried waiting to feed her and trying to feed her more but she screams with hunger and still never eats more than 2 oz. She is growing nicely and following her height and weight curve but I am exhausted and feel like all I do is feed her and wash bottles. When will she start going longer between feedings? Does anyone have any suggestions on how to speed her along?
