My 2. 5 month old is feeding less for the last few days. He feeds for 5 minutes at a time and feeds in an interval of 30minutes-2 hours when awake. He has been sleeping most of the day and half of the night. I need to wake him up during the day to feed, many times he doesn't wake up to ask for feed and when I wake him up, he feeds for 5 minutes and goes back to sleep again. He is active when awake and shows no signs of stress or discomfort. since is sleeping most of the time, urine output seems lesser than before. please suggest

It is quite normal and you have to understand that babies have a very small tummy and hence they feed less but multiple number of times. Make sure that his weight is increasing. There is nothing to be worried as long as the baby is gaining weight, sleeping and showing no signs of stress or discomfort. Hope this helps. Take Care
