She is breastfed. At her 2 month visit she weighed 9lbs121/2oz amd 23in. Her doctor said she's in high percentile in length but low percentile on wweight. How can I get her to gain more? She eats every 2-4 hours.. even at night. I'm just worried

I agree! Don't stress. As long as you know she is satisfied she's fine. If you strictly breast feed with no bottle. Im not sure that you could do anything different hun. If you do both breast and bottle and you feel like she may not be completely satisfied you could try adding a little cereal to her milk. This will fill her more and also help her to sleep longer. But either way don't worry. She will let you know if she's not getting what she needs!

Don't worry her height and weight will change throughout The first year. Your doc will let u know if there is reason for concern.
