That seems like a long gap. Please keep close track as he may be actually taking small power naps while feeding. That is quite normal.

dear Mounika , seems to me the baby is trying to sleep using the breast as pacifier. thats y wenever ur remiving him of breast he is waking up . try to rock him gently to make him fall asleep but dont do it eveytime jus wen this long gap of sleeplessness happens. u can also slowly walk with him but layhim down wen he is abt to cloae his eyes. the last step of sleep let him do.that himself.as the baby is soo small. try to fed him on demand but make sure he sleeps after 1 and half hour throughout the day . at this stage feeding regularly is wat ur main focus sud.be and sleep will follow .
