how many hours is normal for a baby to go without a feed?(breastfeeding)

All babys are different. Its ok for her to be sleeping through from this age, as long as she is getting plenty of food during the day and gaining weight. My youngest was feeding about 4 hourly from the day we bought her home and then started sleeping through from about 4 weeks. Weather plays a part too.

Keep in mind that every baby is different, too. My daughter started out eating about every three hours (kind of dictated by me) and then went about every two hours both day and night for about two months. Then recently, she goes anywhere from 2-6 hours during the day without nursing, and usually between 8-11 hours. So as long as your baby is growing and you watch her cues, there really isn't a "normal" time.
