Q:

my baby is a month old. he is taking breastfeed mostly but i feel he is hungry most of the times. he urge for hunger just after every 15 mins when awake. I am also giving top feed 3 4 times a day. is it normal for toddler to ask for breast milk every 15 mins. he sleeps in my lap very soon during taking milk n don't wake up easily.

this is very much normal
infact your breastfeed would be enough for baby. wake baby by tickling under feet or ear...

he does not wake up by tickling..dont kw how to wake him up. at times I feel for 4 5 hours m feeding him n still he is hungry. though in the meanwhile he is sleeping in my lap doing potty n pee crying etc. but my back hurts for sitting so long.

if his pee count is more than 6-7 and he is gaining weight, he is getting enough feed... babies cry for a lot of reasons, not just because of hunger... if he sleeps after feed, put hi. down if he is not waking up. their stomach is too tiny, so after a pee, they will get hungry again. i know how you feel, i have been through it. correct your posture to prevent backpain. do not lean towards baby, pull baby towards you. sit on a high back chair with pillow at the back and pillow on lap to place baby on for proper height towards breast...
