Sporadic eater

My son is 5 weeks old. He just got over a cold and is working on getting over having an ear infection in both ears. Since he has gotten sick, his eating pattern has been completely sporadic. He'll eat 2 ounces, sleep about an hour, eat another 2 ounces and sleep another hour. Then he wakes and wants a full 4 ounces and will either play for a while or sleep. (I'm expecting him to sleep a lot at this point because he didn't sleep at all for the last week because of the congestion and his ears). I don't know how to get him back on a normal eating schedule or if I should just go with it at this point and let him get back into a routine on his own. I also don't know why it has all of a sudden changed. Anyone else go through this?

Yes this is very normal he is still recouperating by the sounds of things, I would leave it im thinking that he will go back to a regualr routine once he is feeling better. Being sick is very draining his body is going through what its suppose to at the moment!
