    Think its normal with any baby hun, just keep an eye on things and see if her pattern changes (it will at some point i'd imagine)
    Try not to focus too much on exactly how much she's having, it can drive you totally paranoid - if she's having wet nappies and gaining weight, and she's happy within herself, then try not to panic.
