I hope you are doing well. As you are breastfeeding her, there is no specific quantity or amount an infant would drink. Infants feed according to their requirements and need. She might feed for 5 -10 minutes each time and ask for another feed in an hour again. So it depends from infant to infant. What was her birth weight and what is her current weight? If your child feeds well, wets 5-6 diapers and is active, then being thin doesn't matter or shouldn't be taken as a parameter for growth or good health :)
