I would not worry too much. Babies eat when they need to. I would however consider that your baby might have colic. Or he might have gas that can also cause him to cry. What I found helped with my daughter was swaddling. it calmed her down and helped her sleep, which in return made her hungry. Also try placing him on his stomach over your knees while patting his back and supporting his head. This is a method I discovered worked well for me as well as baby because it did not wear me out as much as placing her over my shoulder and I did not end up with baby sick all over my shoulder and hair. Hope this helps :)
