In brief: Answer to second par

The best gauge of the baby getting enough is the weight gain.
Brest fed babiers are fed on demand and usually if you are only breast feedig the baby, the baby will let you know when he or she is hungry again. As the baby gets older, he or she will suck on the breasts longer. The most nutritious milk is the first 5-7 minutes of the feeding on each side. So be sdure to feed on each side each feedin.

In brief: Call your doctors

You should touch base with your pediatrician and possibly your pmd and a lactation consultant.
Your doctor and the pediatrician know you and your baby best. There are many reasons for problems, but please also remember usually the mother and baby are doing just fine. A baby who is peeing and pooping okay, and looks well hydrated, is doing well. Check with pediatrician re: baby's weight gain.
