Question: my baby is sleeping more than 3 hrs...and when he wakes up he jus latches for 10-15 mins...I am concerned if it's fine
Answer: For a new born baby, it is necessary that gap between two feeding sessions is not more than 4 hours. So if your baby is feeding within 4 hours and is also gaining weight, there is nothing to worry. However as new born babies aren't able to suck on enough breast milk, so ideally their feeding sessions should last for about 30 to 45 minutes. In case the baby falls asleep during feeding session, try to wake him/her by rubbing his/her ears or tapping the sole of their feet. You should tickle and trouble your baby so as to ensure that the baby feeds properly. Once the baby is 1.5 to 2 months old, they would be able to suck on the required breast milk in 15-20 minutes feeding session, till then ensure that baby feeds regularly.

Answer: To check if the baby is content, then the body looks relaxed. You can check by moving baby's fingers , it won't be stiff, it will be relaxed, you can love it easily. Few babies will keep their hand above the head. My baby does 😊
