Brief Answer:
Up to 6 times ok, not below. Increase breastfeeding

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through the details carefully and understand your concern.

It is not normal for the urine frequency to drop. If the frequency is more than 6 times in 24 hours, you would know that the amount of feeding is adequate. If the amount of passage of urine is less the amount and frequency of feeds needs to be increased, but if the child is lethargic you would need to take the child to a doctor without any further delay.

Feel free to write back.

Regards
