    That sounds good. Is she having 2-3 dirty diapers each day as well?

    From what you've said here, it definitely doesn't sound like a milk supply problem. It's very normal for some babies, especially very young babies, to nurse as frequently as every hour.

    HTH!

    she does feed every hour and has 5-8 wet diapers but her dirty ones have decreased compared to what she had pror to her 7 weeks.

    she has 2-3 dirty ones but sometimes they are heavy and some are just barely soiled.

    A "large" bowel-movement for a newborn is the size of a U.S. quarter or larger So it sounds like she's getting plenty to eat. You may notice that she doesn't have as many BM's as she gets older, too, and that's normal as long as the wet diapers keep coming.
