I agree if she is putting on weight then don't stress. Just make sure she is having 5-6 wet nappies a day as well :)

You just have to remember that little ones have little stomachs. Her stomach is about the size of her fist. The stomach can stretch, but if she is happy, satisfied after feeding, following her growth curve, have 5-6 wet diapers/day, then she is doing well.

If she's gaining weight and peeing, then she's just fine. I know many Moms stress about their babes eating enough, but really, those are the best indicators.

If she is putting on weight like you said and the doctor doesn't have any concerns, than I don't think you have anything to worry about.
