Once breast milk supply in terms of baby's demand and your supply matches you will feel the breast is soft and not heavy. Baby could be needing to have some entertainment as baby is now growing and also stays up longer hence needs more activity. Make sure the baby is urinating about seven times a day if on exclusive breast feed and that should show your supply is enough. Additionally please compare baby's growth to the growth charts provided by the doctor and not just as a comparison with other babies.
