Q:

Hi everyone; my baby boy is 19days old he sucks milk for long time like half an hour and he fall asleep after 5 min again he ask for milk is it normal or any problem is there

Khushi dear,you need to wake the baby by ticking behind ears,feet and make him drink milk. Also,check for the latch,if it isnt right then baby will have to suck for very long to fill his tummy..these two points should address the issue. Even after that if the baby latches for long,let him,he might be going through growth spurt and establishing your supply which is needed for growing baby. Happy feeding!

Please wake up baby and make him have feed properly.. sleeping in between they don't take proper feed .. make sure your are holding baby properly while feeding.

If the baby is taking milk for half hour but sleeps for 5 mins means the baby is not drinking milk properly. As others suggested keep tickling the baby. After good feed the baby should sleep minimum for 1 hour.

Neha Singhal

Yes they are right. And feed from both breasts don't feed only from one side for half an hour... This way atleast baby wakes up n drinks milk properly..
Happy feeding..

It is normal, just when u feed if he doze off just tickle n feed again. Make sure u feed atleast 20-25 min.
