when is my baby hungry?

Hi everyone. This might sound like a stupid question, but I just cant tell. Megan is 9 weeks old and is in no routine whatsoever. Sometimes goes 3 hours between feeds, others 6 or more. Sometimes drinks 6 oz (she is bottle fed), sometimes only 1. And the smaller amounts are often after the longest period between feeds. So I never know when whe is hungry and when to expect her to want a feed. I have tried contented little baby and baby whisperer but she just wont take a bottle if she doesnt want it. The hv says not to worry but I do. She sometimes only puts on 2-3 oz a week and I worry about her development. Anyone else had similar problems? Thanks ever so much.
