Newborn has a very tiny stomach and they can't digest much. FM is fuller & thicker that's why they tend to drink little. While bm is more watery that's why they can drink more. As long as she has 6 diaper change daily, that means she's hydrated enough so there's no need to worry.

normal FM takes longer time to digest then BM .
