My baby takes feed after every short while she doesn't take it in one go. If she is sleepy she demands for feed and when I give it to her she takes it in the mouth keeps sucking but doesn't really drink. it makes me feel like she wasn't really hungry and she does it just so she can sleep. She dozes off usually while feeding or otherwise she will herself let go and won't put it in her mouth and then again after a short while she will ask for feed. It confuses me as to when is she really hungry and when is she just asking it for leisure.

I hope you are doing well. This is the usual behavior of newborns and infants. When your daughter cries, poops, pees or is wanting to sleep she would look to feed :) So yes, when she is crying she is hungry :) This behavior would change as and when she grows up. So nothing to worry.
