I think typical is once a day or thereabouts and it will be firmer too, more like mashed potatoes (someone correct me if I'm wrong there...).

Sometimes it takes 3, 4, or 9 different formulas before you find the right one that works for your baby so I'd definitely suggest that she keep trying others out.
I will tell her. Thanks mama!
