Brief Answer:
Nothing to Worry..

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX, Welcome to HCM,
I've gone through your query and understand your concern for your son,

At this age group, the dictum is to feed the baby as per his demand, so when he's dissatisfied, means the need is more, so simply increase the feeding time..however since he's slept off or cries during feeding , indicates towards improper technique, so I'd encourage you to ensure the feeding in upright position and change of posture regularly..

Unless the baby's irritable, lethargic, refuses feed, there's no need to worry, however if you still feel difficulty in feeding, probably there's a need to check the feeding technique under trained medical supervision for which simply visit your Gynecologist for a proper demonstration and training for this..
