Every baby has different feeding pattern. If baby is happy,playful and jolly no need to worry this means his feed is sufficient for him otherwise the baby will cry in case he is hungry.

hi Divya, I too used to be troubled alot thinking my child is not drinking properly and taking less milk ,consuming less time. So don't worry too much if your child is fine (not crying) , playful , passing normal motion and gaining weight. My Pediatric said a baby knows his needs he will cry if he is hungry. As they grow they get better capacity to drink fast and stay for longer duration.

Once they cross 3 month of age they tend to do that. Not to worry. They are eating sufficient

what is his age? even if he doesn't wake up to feed after 2hrs press nipple against his lips may side lying position is suitable for it, I'm sure he ll take it in. try this it might work.

If he's pooping less and gaining weight, it means ur feed is utilised in his development and growth. Just press is stomach to make sure it's soft. Apply "Hing" if it's hard and it will settle down. Try monitoring his weight every 20-25 days May be he's a night guy, like my kids :) Don't worry Regards.

also weight gain is proper and do not see any issues with it... he is pooping only two days once.. is it an issue and causing any gas problem.. ?

Okay. Your feed is best then. Don't be pushy as kids today r very hot headed, irrespective of age. Keep a tab on intake. In a day he's drinking around 15 spoons milk (by judgement) u shouldn't worry.

U haven't mentioned his age Little bit of feed at any point in day is good enough. As long as he's reasonably active and gaining weight, u r all good Try fresh orange or lemon juice if he's 6 months or more.
