2 month old baby. Bottle fed. She drinks about 1 to 1.5 oz milk a time. Every hour intervals. At night she sleeps for 7 hours and not fed . Proper?
Pumped milk, right?: Babies drink breast milk, either pumped or directly from the breast. Formula (not cow milk) is an option if there is not enough breast milk. In nature, nobody knows how much a baby drinks, because she drinks from the breast. That being said, if a normal healthy 2 month-old wakes every hour and only drinks 1.5 oz, she can be gradually increased to 3 oz per feeding and will likely sleep better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Great nights!: It's hard to recommend anything that might sacrifice your nights. Preserve that no matter what. For the naps, start a strict daytime feeding schedule of every 2 -3 hours. Force the nap-time, but don't allow the naps to be more than an hour at a time. This will allow your child to get some rest, but hopefully it will not affect your nights. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hard to say: Unless you use cloth, it is hard to say if they wet or not unless you weigh the diaper.Most available disposables are designed with material woven into the fabric that pulls away moisture.If concerned, a square of toilet tissue placed over the genitals will show evidence of a wet when checked. If the kid is otherwise thriving, this is probably ok. ...Read more

As long as your daughter is gaining weight well, it is okay for her to go a little bit longer between feedings at times. If she is normally eating every 3 hours then the occasional longer stretch is fine (I wouldn't expect her to go more than 4-5 hours without a feeding at this age). Follow her lead. ...Read more

If worried about not having enough milk, mom and baby can just see the pediatrician to check on the weight and feeding. ...Read more
