As per Advised by our expert Dr Riddhi (Prenatal) -
Hi Mahalaxmi ,
The correlation with feeding during sleeping and feeding when awake is Whichever position is easy and comfortable for baby , baby will choose that over the other . It can happen that when he is awake , he is distracted a lot and that's why he is unable able to feed when he is not asleep .
If u feel the milk supply is not less - check on this -
10-12 feeds in a day , every feed lasting for 20-45 mins , 6-10 urine outputs , 1 stool output a day , good physical activity and healthy weight gain . This is normal . If anything beyond this, then your supply is less .

Also check on the baby s latch . Is the baby s latch good on the left side also ?

stool output is more than once..sumtym yellow watery like...bt latches only for 7-10 mins only when he is not asleep..if he sleeps den more than 10 mins he latches...so is der any issue in time constraint too???..plz do repl
