my 4 and half months old girl feeds me only for 3 to 4 mins at a time and want to feed after an hour at times. but at night or while sleeping in day she feeds at a gap of 2 to 3 hours.

There's no such standard. it's necessary when you are breastfeeding to feed on demand. It doesn't matter how quickly your baby gets hungry again, butthe gap shouldn't be more than 2 hours. I was nursing my baby every 45 min... you will see a change once you start weaning.

There is no feeding chart.. Nurse as per baby demand.. Ideally a healthy baby must feed at least 8 times a day... quantity depends on ur milk flow..
