A. Yes it’s Normal even my son does the same thing . Drinks milk , play for sometime , then sleep . All this happens in 2 hours gap and again the cycle repeats

A.  Breast milk gets digested at a faster pace and this is why, nursing babies get hungry more often. If you have to nurse around 10-12 times a day, it is not uncommon.

A. babies get distracted while breastfeeding at this age., especially in day time. choose a place with minimal distraction, away from noise,  feed whenever you see signs of hunger.

A. Initially newborns are like this. It's not a concern. It may take some time for them to follow a sleep routine. Still then adjust with your baby. You can use mild lights during night times. So your baby will know it's night and will know he or she will have to sleep. Play any mild music for baby to relax. Feed a little more during night hours for good sleep.
