  • Yes. They eat when they're hungry and if you're on a feeding schedual yet dont worry if she's not taking at the time she'll let you know.

  • I agree with the PP. Just count dipes to make sure she's getting enough 6-8 wets a day, and a really wet one counts as 2.

  • It's fine. Don't even bother timing the feedings. On demand, and as long as the baby wants.
