My son is 3 weeks old and it seems he isn't feeding as he should as he seems to have milk and he then cries about 20 minutes later for more help I also have a 5yrold.

Breast or bottle fed? Sounds like a growth spurt

About 60

Does he finish the 60mls? If so, make a bigger feed

Could also be crying due to tiredness. Does he take a dummy?
