I have a 1. 5 month old son . he is on breastfeed as well as formula milk .. I try to breastfeed him during day and at night i gave him formula .. during day he drinks only for 6 to 9 mins per feed and fall asleep than wakes up after 1. 5 or 2 hours for next feed .. Does 6 to 9 min per feed fill his tummy or he sleeps hungry? I am worried because he is not gaining much weight .his birth weight was 2. 9 kg and now after 6 weeks he is 4 kg.

His weight is okay :) It will increase with breastfeeding and formula feed. Infants usually feed anywhere between 5-45mins at each feed. Please don't be worried and take care.
