He wakes up at night and demands for feed which he takes for around 2hours from both sides and above that he still has scope of more feed for which I gave him 60ml of formula feed but still he demanded more of the breastmilk. Is it normal ? I can feel he's getting enough milk through breastfeeding but still he's demanding for more. Pls suggest
