Helo Rashi the same thing happening with my baby also. It is normal and it changes after few weeks or month. As baby grows they will pass various phases as someday they will be sleeping properly somedays they will be crying. So we cannot fix anything or decide as how they will be in the coming weeks. Breastfeeding helps to calm the baby. If they take only for few minutes that's okay and you cannot force feed baby. Baby pee and poop count is good then there is nothing to worry. When you goto pediatrician check baby's weight also. If baby is gaining proper weight then there is nothing to worry. Make sure baby is active also. Sometimes the breastfeeding duration may increase sometimes it may decrease also the baby will be deciding how much to drink. If their tummy is full they wont drink and the excess milk what they had also comes off
