the mother needs to check the flow of her milk. If it is less, then take care of her diet. She 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.
