A. Hi if baby is active alert and accepting feeds well do not worry Feed the baby for atleast 20min, it helps baby getting foremilk(watery part of milk) which quench thirst as well as hind milk(thick part of milk) which provides satiety.
Please consult Paediatrician for growth charting

A. you can start formula milk.. you may need to breastfeed your baby every 2 to 3 hours. So over a 24 hour period, your baby will feed 8 to12 times in just one day. This may seem like you are breastfeeding all day, allowing them to take more milk each feed and they will slowly extend out their requests to feed every 3 to 4 hours.
Feed your baby as frequently and as long as they want to, even at night. As your baby becomes older and more mature the feeding frequency will decrease.
