If your measurement was in pounds, then her weight is on the 25th percentile for her age which is normal. For a 2 month infant, it is suggest 8-12 feedings a day, 2-4ozs of breast milk or infant formula per feed. An infant would want to feed all the time if they do not get enough breast milk or infant formula at the actual time of feeding. If she falls asleep as you are feeding, suggest waking her up or change her diaper and then resume feeding. If you are breastfeeding, the longer you feed her at a feeding you will product more breast milk. Hoped this helped you.
