Rebecca Prakash; can u plz suggest ??

Hey hope the milk supply is good enough ..basically the babies take it as a soother also while trying to sleep or not feeling well..
Burp the baby after the feeds...tc

He is drinking milk or just nibbling? Sometimes as Kavita said for soothing purposes they do like that. Baby is just 2 weeks so give him some time to adapt to a feeding pattern till then feed the baby whenever he wants.

How to distinguish between whether baby is drinking milk or just nibbling?

You can make out from their jaw moving, nibbling is painful as they nibble only the end of nipple.
