My 3 wk old has been eating way less the past few days. He eats for about 10 min on one breast and then goes to sleep for a long time, 3-4 hrs, then only eats 10 min again. My breasts are leaking, and I'm afraid it's going to kill my milk supply. Is this normal? My dd never did this, but do some babies?
TIA

Dd ate like that. I had a ton of milk and overactive let-down. Is your baby still having pleanty of wet/soiled diapers?

He's still got wet diapers and poopy dipes. He has a problem with shallow latch, so I'm surprised that he can get enough in such a short amt of time.
Does overactive letdown help them get enough really fast?
