Hi. my child. is 40 days old. she wakes in the afternoon and sleeps after 4-5 hours. From the time she wakes up I feed her then she pees within sometime and cries as she gets hunger. I don't know what to do. I don't know whether milk is sufficient. Is it normal or should we visit doctor??

you need to check the flow of your milk. If it is less, you take care of your diet. You should also feed on both the sides for equal duration, that is 10 minutes at one side and another 10 minutes on the other side. If the milk flow is good, 20-25 minutes would be sufficient. Sometimes a baby may continue to take the feed from the mother as it gives them emotional security too.Relax, small babies have this cycle of feeding sleeping, urinating and again feeding. This would get regulated in few months.
