New Kitten eating habit

Hello Everyone any advice you can offer will really help

I got Penny on friday 17th feb and she is just over 8 weeks old.

My concern is her eating habits. She was eating wet food and kitten milk and/or water before she came to us.

She has eaten small amounts, about a fifth of a packet a time once or twice a day since and is drink but again only a little. Am I being paranoid in being concerned that she isnt eating enough? Reading the box that holds the kitten food it says at her age she would be going through a packet a day. If she wants to be fed she will meow at us.

She sleeps a lot but no more than your average kitty and when she is awake and playful she is a bundle of energy.

Shall I be concerned or am I being the paranoid "mother"?

keep in ind that, she is in a new enviroment, and it will take some time to adjust.
some cats eat more than others if you see that it contineaus and your concerned bring her to a vet.

Definitely adjusting and since you say she is active, everything looks fine. Hope soon when she feel too hungry would eat more..
