hi akshata, babys at this age start getting distracted  easily and special they do at feed time, try to feed him in silent environment , switch of the lights and calm him, also check if he is not having cold , ir mouth ulcer , my baby had this and he use to leave sucking after 2 minutes , if problem persists and you are not able to solve consult your doctor, and don't worry it. be alright :)

As babies by this time have developed vision and started seeing Colors and also recognises some familiar faces, baby wants to explore more. No need to worry. It's just normal and natural. As Aradhana said.. try not to feed in front of anyone or TV. Take baby in some room with no distractions of ppl, sound or any other thing. Baby as they grow.. their sucking power will be more and they can suck more milk in less time. If baby is active and healthy...no need to worry. Feed him every 2 hrs once. Give more tummy time. This will relieve gas and also helps strength it's neck and other movement. Soon baby will try to roll also. Once baby start rolling, be careful and someone's presence is required. Than cot.. keep baby on thick quilt on floor . Enjoy this lovely phase.

thanku Roopashree but problem is he wants to suck only left breast..n becomes very cranky when i offer him right one..what is the reason ?..worried

hi akshata, feed in a room with minimal distractions. offer the breast baby does not prefer first. also try football position for that breast. maybe its too full and baby cannot latch. express some milk and then offer the breast...
