Totally normal for babies to want to nurse I often. This is GOOD because this helps milk supply. Milk supply works on supply and demand. The more you nurse, the more you will make. You don't want heavy engorged breasts because this slows production. Leaking has no bearing on milk production

The best way to know if baby is getting enough is by diaper count. 6-8 diapers, no matter content and baby is getting enough

Have you talked to your doctor about that? Is your baby gaining weight? How much do you change him? I would contact your doctor right away. You can still breastfeed keep on it
