do NOT add cereal to her bottle- it's not good for her tummy, it's a choking hazard, and it's empty calories that she needs from milk. There is no nutrition in baby cereal.

During the day? That sounds long to me, but as long as she's content, growing, thriving, and getting enough wet diapers then it should be fine. My oldest nursed every 3 hour until around 5 or 6 months and my youngest nursed every 1-4 hours until he was a year and a half!

Sounds fine to me. By 3 months, it is normal for them not to eat as often anyway. As long as she is happy and growing, there is nothing wrong with it.

She'll cry if she's hungry. You cannot schedule everything in a babies life. It's ok, as long as she's still growing and gaining weight. You might add cereal to her milk form the bottle so she is getting extra vitamins.

sounds perfectly normal. If her doctor is happy she's growing well then you're doing just fine
