How much should my 3 month old be eating?

I have a 3 month old daughter. I breastfeed her from 5 o'clock in the evening until 6 o'clock in the morning about 6-8 feeding throught out those hours & my mother-in-law feeds her a total of 6-9 oz between 9am-5pm, 2-3 feedings . Is that normal, is she eating enough?

  • Count dipes. If you're changing 6-8 a day she's eating enough. All you EVER need worry about is the dipe count.
